OBWB’s litigation lawyers have the expertise necessary to lead the full range of intellectual property litigation in a broad range of technologies, to obtain client-centered results. We counsel clients ranging from up-and-coming entrepreneurs to multinational corporations in patent, trademark, copyright, false advertising, trade secret, and unfair competition disputes throughout the United States in federal district and appellate courts, in the U.S. International Trade Commission and the USPTO, and in Texas state courts. In Europe, our French and European patent attorneys based in Paris assist clients with disputes in the Paris Court and oppositions before the European Patent Office Opposition Divisions and Boards of Appeal. Our Hangzhou attorneys assist clients with disputes in the China National Intellectual Property Administration.
Authenticity, open communication, early strategic planning, and detailed case preparation comprise the foundation in representing our clients. We implement proven strategies based on decades of pre-trial, discovery, motion practice, and courtroom experience. Every member of our team has a technical, science, or engineering degree and industry experience, allowing us to assess the technology at issue and work effectively with technical experts. With our keen listening skills, creativity, adaptability, perseverance, persuasive writing skills, articulate communication skills, and the ability to process and condense large amounts of information, we aim to provide our clients with top-notch legal representation. We analyze cases from both our client’s and the adversary’s point of view to focus on our client’s strengths and exploit the adversary’s weaknesses. We can be patient or aggressive, as needed for a specific matter, to reach effective results. We relish being in the courtroom, but also assist our clients in making difficult choices in order to move forward without or beyond litigation. We are well-versed in alternative dispute resolution, mediation, and settlement negotiations.
Because intellectual property disputes are often global in scope, we partner when necessary with highly qualified IP litigation attorneys in jurisdictions not served by our international offices, so that our clients’ global disputes may be resolved in a strategically coordinated manner.
