Intellectual Property Litigation
We are established litigators who represent clients in patent, trademark, copyright, and trade secret cases before juries, judges, and arbitrators. We represent clients in serious, challenging disputes with both competitors and nonpracticing entities (NPEs), and our team is often called upon to right the ship in high-stakes proceedings. We relish hard cases.
Given our team’s broad experience, technical expertise, and thorough efforts to understand our clients’ business, technology, and goals, it is no surprise that we are regularly retained by market leaders and innovative startups alike to represent them in federal district court, state court, USPTO, and ITC proceedings. We also have significant appellate experience, further strengthening our ability to effectively handle the unique procedural and substantive aspects of PTAB trials and related Federal Circuit appeals. Whether representing plaintiffs or defendants, our litigators do what it takes to deliver successful results.
Complex Commercial Litigation
In today’s risk-averse legal environment, KXT Law differentiates itself from other firms through our willingness to take creative approaches, even when they are not easy. We are known for our ability to untangle the most complex cases, and find solutions for our clients where previously none were apparent. Our attorneys are experts, and have experience representing clients in trial and appellate courts at the federal and state level, before administrative tribunals, and in arbitrations and other dispute resolution proceedings. It is no surprise that we are regularly retained by market leaders and innovative startups alike to help resolve disputes.
We make a point to learn about our clients’ business, technology, and goals in order to tailor our approach to the specific characteristics of each case. Though we are experienced negotiators and evaluate early exit options to minimize client costs through mediation and dispositive motions, we litigate every matter as though we are going to trial and take pride in our preparedness.
