We are associated with a group of dedicated attorneys who have successfully handled high-stakes intellectual property disputes since 2004. As a result of our practical yet innovative approach to litigation, we have achieved many successful, economically feasible resolutions for our clients.
Our goal is to know our trade and be the best at what we do and to keep the client's best interest as the primary guiding light. Litigation makes lawyers, courts, governments, expert witnesses and others rich but rarely is litigation the best solution for the client. Thus, we endeavor to avoid litigation if possible. For "winning" intellectual property litigation can be as painful as any loss. When litigation cannot be avoided the next goal is to achieve the most cost-effective "win" for our clients. If a settlement can be reached we push for a settlement; otherwise, we go to trial.
We are here to help when issues arise before or after a patent is granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Our litigation practice group counsels and represents its clients before trial and appellate courts, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), and the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB). Our attorneys also have experience in patent opposition proceedings in foreign countries.
Our attorneys have represented both plaintiffs and defendants in patent litigation in district courts and the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC). BSKB also has experience practicing before the PTAB both prior to and after the institution of the America Invents Act.
We are well-versed in the rules and procedures governing trademark oppositions and petitions for cancellation before the TTAB and litigation of trademark disputes in the courts.
Our broad technical expertise, deep knowledge of the substantive law, and significant experience with adversarial proceedings enable us to effectively advocate on our clients’ behalf, to establish their right to priority of invention, and to negotiate advantageous settlements.
