Copyrights are essential to the protection of original works that are fixed in a tangible medium of expression, such as a book, artwork, photograph, or music. Various types of remedies can be available in copyright litigation, including actual damages, the defendant’s profits, statutory damages, reasonable royalty damages, and injunctive relief.

Trademarks are often an essential component of a company’s business model and plan. Trademarks, a form of intellectual property, are symbols, logos, words, or designs that assign unique identifiers to goods or services so that consumers can identify a particular company’s offerings and distinguish them from competing offerings.

Trade Secrets

Trade secrets provide an important avenue for companies to protect their market position in today’s complex, global business landscape.

Disputes over trade secret misappropriation can create complicated environments for determining remedies. Our economic, finance, accounting, and statistical experts provide robust research, analysis, and expertise to assist clients in resolving trade secret disputes involving claims for monetary recovery or injunctive relief.
