Massey & Gail’s lawyers have decades of intellectual property experience handling patent, trademark, copyright and trade secret cases. We represent both petitioners and patent owner in inter partes reviews (IPR) at the United States Patent & Trademark Office. We also handle IP appeals, both in our own cases and in cases where we are brought in after an adverse result at trial.
When our clients are plaintiffs, their IP often represents the crown jewels of their businesses. We help them protect those assets and unlock their full value, whether through pre-licensing negotiations, suits against infringers, or by defeating IPR cancellation proceedings. When our clients are defendants, our attorneys’ extensive experience allows us to focus on essential issues early, identifying the motivating factors of both strategic plaintiffs and non-practicing entities (NPEs), and using that information to craft a coherent strategy to end the case on terms favorable to the client.
We also recognize that our clients’ interests, whether as patent owners or as potential infringers, often lie in resolving disputes without litigation. To that end, we provide strategic advice to our clients regarding licensing negotiations with patent owners and develop negotiating points and presentations for our clients, enabling them to strike better deals without the need to resort to litigation.
