For many businesses, intellectual property is their most significant asset and their greatest vulnerability. The expense associated with complex intellectual property litigation has the potential to cripple businesses and can dissuade companies from protecting their investments. At Robinson+Cole, the Intellectual Property Litigation Team works closely with the Intellectual Property and Technology Team to understand the science and technology behind our clients' business operations, enabling us to develop a litigation strategy rooted in our clients' business goals.
Our Services and Our Team
Our experience helps us to reduce uncertainty by objectively evaluating cases early in the process. That experience includes representing major corporations in intellectual property litigation hotbeds, including the Eastern District of Texas, the District of Delaware, and the Northern District of California, as well as in local matters in the state and federal courts.
We represent clients in diverse industries in disputes concerning the following:
Represent a Fortune 50 corporation in a federal trade secret dispute, which includes allegations under the Defend Trade Secrets Act.
Won dismissal of an aerospace trade secrets dispute against our client by demonstrating that the plaintiff had no evidence of damages. After a win at summary judgment, our victory was upheld on appeal before the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
Negotiated a detailed agreement to resolve a potential trade secrets dispute. We collaborated with our e-discovery lawyers, corporate intellectual property counsel, and trial counsel to create and execute a plan to resolve the dispute without the need for any litigation.
Represented client who sued a former distributor of the client’s revolutionary technology, which has been credited with saving lives in wars in the Middle East and in trauma accidents throughout the world. A U.S. District Court found on all counts for our client and against the defendant in this trademark infringement case.
Forced plaintiff to drop patent suit against our client, a major health insurer, concerning technology for claims handling. Our threatened motion to dismiss on Alice grounds created crucial and case-winning leverage for our client.
Filed a declaratory judgment action that forced a proposed plaintiff, a chronic lawsuit filer, to back off when our client received a letter threatening a baseless patent infringement action.
