Protecting valuable inventions in a highly competitive global environment has become increasingly challenging for multinational businesses. With the significant rise in patent litigation and with damages exceeding the billion-dollar mark in the US, the risks and opportunities facing companies are higher than ever. Whether enforcing your patents against others or defending you against claims of patent infringement, Chamberlain Hrdlicka has the experience to help you succeed.
Trial readiness is a cornerstone of all litigation disciplines practiced at Chamberlain Hrdlicka, and we believe that the best litigation results—whether achieved in court or across the bargaining table—occur where the client and we act on the assumption that the case will go to trial. Chamberlain Hrdlicka’s Patent Litigation team partners with clients to develop creative and cost-effective solutions for the complex issues that arise in patent litigation. We focus on trial strategy and themes from the beginning of a case. While most cases settle before trial, strong trial-based case development optimizes the chance of favorable settlements by yielding pre-trial victories and signaling to the adversary that our client is unafraid to try the case if necessary to protect its interests.
Our litigation teams include top-notch patent prosecutors who have a deep understanding of clients’ technologies, potential prior art, patent laws and rules, and the fine distinctions between claims. We understand the law, we understand complex litigation, we understand juries, and we understand technology. Together with our clients, we develop creative and winning litigation strategies that other firms would never think of. Known for our creative, tenacious problem-solving abilities—and deep fluency in every technology area and venue imaginable—if there is a way to win, we find it.
