TAA lawyers frequently assist clients making a variety of types of business decisions concerning patents. Our lawyers have performed patent assessments in a wide variety of contexts, including both offensive or defensive litigation preparation, freedom to operate and other types of patent risk assessment, in- and out-licensing of patents, IP due diligence in merger or acquisition efforts, and patent assessments incidental to decisions to invest in product development. We have conducted patent assessments in virtually all fields of technology, including electronics, integrated circuits, computer hardware, software, networking, telecommunications, business methods, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, materials science and chemical manufacturing and process technologies.
Our lawyers draw upon their extensive litigation experience, their knowledge of the technology at issue, and their experience in patent law and practice when they assess patents for their clients. This enables our lawyers to provide insightful “real world” assessments of individual patents or entire patent estates. We believe this provides significant value to clients when they make business decisions based on those patents.
We have vast experience representing diverse clients defending and prosecuting trademark infringement claims in many venues across the nation. Such cases often begin with an expedited demand for temporary restraining orders or preliminary injunctions. Our lawyers are adept at handling such fast-paced litigation and bring a special level of focused experience to these complex matters.
Our trademark litigation experience has also covered a wide variety of consumer products, from computer software to book titles to tractors. Our group is active in Internet-related trademark claims, including both prosecuting and defending claims of infringement arising out of Internet-based activities.
