Intellectual Property Litigation



Matters of intellectual property litigation pose a serious financial risk to companies and individuals alike, and require very technical knowledge and an analytical approach in order to achieve a successful outcome. At Sandberg Phoenix, we have experienced both criminal and civil intellectual property cases from both the plaintiff and defendant sides and possess significant expertise in a diverse variety of situations and claims.

We understand that intellectual property cases require efficient and decisive action to recover damages or mitigate the impact of the litigation on the ability of the company to continue functioning and returning a profit. These cases are high stakes and require an in-depth knowledge of our clients’ products and industries and the ability to synthesize complex, technical information into an easily-understood concept for juries and judges.

We are experienced in a wide range of intellectual property disputes, including patent, copyright and trademark infringement, false advertising, licensing and trade secret and trade dress matters. These cases have taken place in Missouri, Illinois, Michigan, Virginia, Alabama and California, among other states, and have taken place in both federal and state courts. We have handled cases involving agencies including the International Trade Commission (ITC), Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB). From applications for emergency injunctive relief, including restraining orders, preliminary injunctions and seizures to declaratory judgment proceedings, trials and appeals, our attorneys are prepared to handle virtually any situation involving your intellectual property rights.

Veteran attorney David B. B. Helfrey approaches each case prepared to fight for our clients through challenging trials, if that is what it takes to achieve a successful result. We are committed to applying our expertise and tenacity to work on behalf of clients ranging from start-ups to major international corporations in order to effectively defend their rights in these delicate, high-risk matters. While each case is as unique as the client bringing it to us, we invest the time needed to not only understand the competitive landscape in which our client is operating, but to develop an ongoing relationship whereby we can provide assistance on a wide range of additional legal issues.
