Intellectual property rights may have little or no value if they are not defended. At times, it may be prudent to assert intellectual property rights against another party. Sometimes, another party may assert claims against you. The dispute may start out as a negotiation, move to an administrative proceeding such a trademark opposition or trademark cancellation or domain name proceeding, or ultimately move to the courtroom.
With input and direction from the client, the law firm counsels the client in options during the dispute and may represent the client in the proceeding.
