Intellectual Property Disputes

Intellectual Property Litigation Attorneys

Businesses invest huge amounts of money creating, promoting, and protecting their intellectual property such as patents, copyrights, and trademarks. Our lawyers aggressively represent plaintiffs and defendants in intellectual property claims involving:

  • Infringement
  • Licensing and royalty disputes
  • Trade secret litigation
  • Unfair trade competition
  • Patent interference and invalidity
  • Covenants not to compete in conjunction with sale of a business
  • Copyright renewal claims
  • Transfer of copyrights
  • Cybersquatting

At McQUEEN DROSTE LLP in Newport Beach, California, our attorneys understand that businesses need practical solutions to their intellectual property disputes, not endless years of litigation. Our lawyers will analyze whether or not you have a viable claim, do legal research as to whether your intellectual property is sustainable or whether you are infringing on somebody else’s intellectual property. We will also help you develop a strategy for protecting or defending your intellectual property, which can include written communications, investigative analysis, and litigation.

In addition to representing our clients in intellectual property negotiations, mediation, arbitrations, and trials, our attorneys have a high rate of success in appeals, including a number of published opinions.

Intellectual property litigation victories
Our attorneys obtained a $1.4 million settlement in a patent infringement case after prevailing before the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

We also analyzed the patent portfolio of a company in which our client was considering investing $6.5 million. Through our efforts, the latent infirmities of the underlying patents were discovered and the investment was not made—avoiding the investment loss and years of litigation.
