M & K’s Patent Litigation And Trial Team

Patent rights are increasingly becoming crucial to the success of modern business. When litigation is necessary to protect and enforce your rights, M & K’s patent litigation and trial attorneys are prepared to defend your patent rights to the fullest extent of the law. We handle infringement litigation in courts across the country, from matters involving basic designs to complex computer software and biochemical patents. From sending cease and desist letters to potential infringers to the conclusion of trial, M & K’s patent litigation and trial team is prepared to protect our clients’ patent rights.

Alternatively, defending against a claim of patent infringement can be just as important to both small and large businesses. M & K is committed to protecting our clients who have allegedly infringed others’ patents and those who have unjustly been accused of infringement and limiting their exposure and damages. From actively defending the allegations of infringement with appropriate affirmative defenses, to attacking the validity of the patent(s) at issue and asserting any other appropriate counterclaims. M & K’s patent and intellectual property attorneys have successfully defended clients sued for patent infringement and have successfully asserted a variety of counterclaims including invalidity, trademark infringement, trade dress infringement, unfair competition, and tortuous interference with existing or prospective business relations, latches, estoppel as well as antitrust violations. Successfully establishing such counterclaims and defenses can be a valuable tool in settlement negotiations.

Our New York and New Jersey patent and intellectual property attorneys provide our clients with in-house, third-party and/or expert analysis and opinions on the likelihood of patent infringement and freedom to operate opinions. Such opinions also can contribute as a valuable tool in settlement negotiations.

Despite the subject matter of the patent(s) at issue, M & K’s patent and intellectual property attorneys are committed to ascertaining the personal and professional goals that are important to our clients and strive to achieve these goals as quickly and efficiently as possible. Whether the proper way to achieve the most beneficial outcome is an early settlement or litigation through trial, M & K’s patent litigation and trial team is prepared to go the distance for our clients.

Our New Jersey and New York patent and intellectual property attorneys hold a variety of technical and advanced degrees and M & K’s patent litigation trial team works closely with its patent prosecution experts to create effective patent infringement and defense strategies for our clients.
