Powerful ideas. Practical advice.
Intellectual property claims are increasingly complex. Patent infringement, copyright infringement, trademark infringement, trade secrets violations, and trade dress violation claims are more common than ever. At Anthony Ostlund, we take the protection and prosecution of IP rights seriously. Our attorneys diligently research and prepare all intellectual property claims for trial, which allows us to provide our clients with the best and most comprehensive litigation strategy.
Even before we consider litigation, however, we analyze how the dispute will affect our client’s finances and business. We take great care to ensure that we advise our clients not only about the potential legal outcomes, but also about the long-term business consequences. We want our clients to have the information to make the best decisions on how they should move forward with their IP dispute.
Due to our broad experience and deep knowledge of litigation and court procedures, attorneys at our Minneapolis office successfully represent plaintiffs and defendants in IP disputes around the country. Learn more about our IP litigation practice by contacting us.
