Resolving Intellectual Property Disputes

Mediation in intellectual property disputes requires specialized skills. For your client you want a mediator, or other neutral, that understands IP law, so you do not spend time bringing them up to speed on basics. You want a neutral that has had years of IP litigation experience and, from that, has a realistic understanding of jury dynamics and summary judgment practice in IP cases. You also want a neutral that, while diplomatic, has the confidence and gravitas to press either, or both, sides when appropriate. You want a neutral that can spot and focus on the pivotal IP issues. We provide those.
