We firmly believe that a client on either side of a patent infringement dispute can protect its interests without overspending on litigation. Our experience defeating some of the worlds’ biggest corporations and best-known law firms bears this out. Below are highlights of some of our litigation victories. For a more complete list, click here.
- We beat Oracle’s infringement claim against our client on a motion for summary judgment — in other words, we showed that Oracle’s claims were invalid without the need for a trial.
- We obtained an injunction against Microsoft, preventing Microsoft from releasing Vista and forcing Microsoft to negotiate a licensing agreement that significantly increased the value of our client’s network communications patents.
- When our client was threatened with patent infringement litigation by Diversified Technologies, we beat our opponent to the punch by filing a declaratory judgment action that eventually forced a binding agreement not to sue our client.
- When our client was about to become involved in Crossroads Systems’ aggressive patent infringement litigation against many defendants, we again took the initiative to force a favorable settlement.
Our success in all types of intellectual property infringement litigation — including copyrights and trademarks — demonstrates that SELG is the best choice to represent your company.
Whenever possible, we use infringement litigation as a vehicle for improving the value of your IP holdings; whenever necessary, we’ll defend you in court from infringement allegations by raising such defenses as invalidity, non-infringement, or unenforceability due to inequitable conduct on the part of your opponent.
