You’ve done everything you can to reduce your exposure to risk, but disputes will inevitably occur. We believe litigation is the last resort – it’s costly, time consuming, disruptive, stressful and can take your focus off the real goal of growing your business and servicing your customers. Our resourceful counselors work creatively to resolve disputes efficiently and economically through alternative dispute resolution such as negotiation, mediation and arbitration.
However, we also know that occasionally, after careful cost-benefit analysis, litigation is necessary. Our legal team has extensive knowledge and experience in managing litigation, including electronic document and email recovery, depositions, experts, investigative support, presentations, and translators and interpreters.
Breach of Contract Claims
Breach of contract disputes rise when there is failure to meet the specified contractual obligations. This may be a full, or material, breach causing monetary damages or a partial, or immaterial breach. We have a strong reputation for carefully analyzing the matter, evaluating the options and assessing the cost benefit of pursuing recourse.
Confidential Information & Trade Secret Misappropriation
Trade secrets can be anything from a formula, process, design, compilation, technique, method, software or device that is economically valuable to your business by not being readily ascertainable or available to the public. Your trade secrets are extremely valuable to your business and protecting them through Non-Disclosure and Confidentiality Agreements is not to be taken lightly. If you discover a breach of confidentiality, intentional or otherwise, prompt action is necessary. Implementing trade secret policies, procedures, audits and effective employee exits will greatly reduce the threat of exposure.
Intellectual Property Infringement
Whether you have a comprehensive IP protection strategy or didn’t even realize you had IP, disputes happen. Should you find yourself needing assistance in an IP dispute, our team has the business experience and legal savvy to dig deep to analyze the full extent of infringement and liability. We will evaluate your options, counsel on next steps and represent you until we successfully resolve the dispute.
