Patent Opinions and Reviews
Companies facing the question of possible infringement have an “affirmative duty of due care” which includes obtaining an opinion of competent patent counsel that products or services do not infringe a valid patent. Failure to obtain such opinions can result in a finding of willful infringement, or subject a company to sanctions that can include treble damages and attorney fees. Unlike most opinion practices, patent litigators render our non-infringement and invalidity opinions. The attorneys’ significant trial experience and advanced degrees or industry experience in the relevant technology allows them to provide a practical, real-world assessment of infringement risks to aid our clients in meeting business objectives.
