Protecting your innovation and success
In today's highly competitive, knowledge-based economy, a company's IP strategy is the driver of business success. Your company's intellectual property protects its investments in technology and allows you to build market advantage. Increasingly, legal disputes over the ownership and breadth of patent rights are among the most important issues faced by companies competing in the global marketplace.
To assure prompt, efficient and effective resolution of disputes, our intellectual property litigation lawyers and scientists work as a team to advocate your interests in U.S. and foreign courts, in arbitration arbitral proceedings, in the International Trade Commission, and in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Foley Hoag also manages global patent litigation in multiple foreign jurisdictions.
We litigate intellectual property disputes for our clients in a wide variety of complex technical fields, including biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, medical devices and diagnostics, computer electronics and software, cellular telephones, Internet search engines and novel business methods. To maximize your success, Foley Hoag has assembled a talented group of intellectual property litigators who combine in-depth knowledge of patent law, aptitude for science and technology, and trial expertise, including substantial jury trial experience.
Advocacy of intellectual property rights will best succeed when presented to a judge or jury in clear, simple, and persuasive language. To make your story compelling, we select scientific and economic experts with the same objective in mind (usually leaders in their fields at top universities and research institutions). We also take advantage of the latest technology in animation, video and computer graphics to add depth and clarity to your story in the courtroom. To optimize success in front of juries, Foley Hoag regularly conducts mock trials and applies our jury research to the unique facts and circumstances of your intellectual property litigation case.
From the outset of an engagement, often well before any litigation has begun, Foley Hoag will help you understand the legal challenges, risks, budgetary implications, and opportunities associated with different forms of dispute resolution, including litigation, mediation, arbitration, and negotiated settlements. Whether your goal is enforcing your intellectual property rights against competitors, resolving inventorship disputes, or defending against overreaching infringement claims, we focus on your business objectives. Foley Hoag will advocate on your behalf as though they were our own.
