IP Litigation:
Brooks Kushman’s skilled and experienced litigators are known for achieving the results their clients expect - pursuing litigation strategies that consistently deliver desired outcomes by focusing squarely on the key elements that will achieve positive results. The bench of litigation attorneys take an aggressive, thorough and efficient approach to litigation, rejecting the expensive and wasteful ‘no stone unturned’ or ‘scorched earth’ approach sometimes favored by other firms. Representing both plaintiffs and defendants, attorneys litigate patent infringement, trademark infringement and trade secret misappropriation cases before juries and judges in federal courts throughout the nation and administrative bodies such as the Patent Trial and Appeal Board and the International Trade Commission. They have also handled appeals before the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and submitted amicus briefings in landmark cases before the US Supreme Court and the Federal Circuit.
