IP Litigation

Our IP litigation attorneys excel in complex intellectual property & business disputes.

The Burgoyne Law Group’s intellectual property litigation attorneys have achieved exceptional results in copyright, trademark and trade secret litigation.

Like most firms, we describe our expertise in terms of discreet forms of intellectual property. Real world problems, however, rarely raise just one issue. Our IP litigation attorneys excel in matters implicating multiple forms of intellectual property. As a result of our business litigation expertise, our attorneys also stand out in IP litigations raising complex breach of contract, corporate, employment and other business law issues. Our lawyers have particular experience in emergency intellectual property litigation, and in digital forensic investigations of anonymous software and Internet-related infringement.

As examples, our IP litigation lawyers secured excellent results on behalf of the following clients:

  • A website aggregator accused of copyright, trademark, contract and hacking violations resulting from the scraping of data off a competitor’s website
  • An online retailer whose officers violated fiduciary and other duties by starting a competing business using the retailer’s trade secrets, content and back-end software
  • A software developer whose tools were incorporated into applications marketed by a Fortune 50 tech giant despite a pre-existing software license barring such use
  • An affiliate network caught in a trademark and contract indemnity lawsuit over alleged trademark infringement by one of the network’s affiliate publishers
  • A services business whose proprietary client database was stolen by an employee and given to a competitor who sent defamatory letters to the business’s customers

Many of our clients’ businesses depend on the protection, licensing and use of intellectual property. Still, as our IP litigation attorneys understand, those clients can’t afford to become mired in endless litigation. Our clients, like most businesses, want practical, economical solutions to their intellectual property and other legal problems. Our lawyers never forget that the purpose of your intellectual property litigation strategy should be to increase your business’s bottom line.
