IP Litigation

The Bilicki Law Firm has a long record of achieving outstanding results for our clients in litigating disputes, including "bet-the-company" cases involving patents, trademarks, copyrights, unfair competition, and trade secrets, as well as other intellectual property-related cases, including complex contract cases.

Although we have the privilege of representing industry leaders, many of our cases have involved the representation of growing companies with innovative products who have challenged the industry leaders in the marketplace, gaining significant market share. As such, we have litigated against both household-name large IP boutiques and general practice firms.

Because of the inherent complexity of the issues in every patent case, regardless of the damages sought, and the tendency of larger, well-heeled competitors to outspend some of our clients, difficult choices must be made by the client during the course of litigation that may have long-term consequences.

We creatively use every tool available to help clients meet their goals, many times without the time and expense of a trial on the merits and appeal. These tools include the effective use of summary judgment motions and other forms of motion practice, including preliminary injunction motions and temporary restraining orders, as well as the use of effective expert testimony, mediation, and other forms of alternate dispute resolution. We have won summary judgments and prevailed on motions to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction in patent cases.

Key to our and our clients' mutual success is our ability to effectively manage litigation costs. Clients who have used the large IP boutique firms in the past have told us that our fees have been less than half for similar cases, with results that speak for themselves.
