Intellectual Property Litigation

Intellectual Property Attorney in Long Island, NY

The Intellectual Property practice at Rubinstein Law Firm,
PLLC is recognized as one of the leading IP firms in New York
for matters such as patents, trademarks, copyrights and related IP
litigation.

We focus on leveraging our clients’ intellectual property to
help them achieve success in their corresponding industry. Our lawyers provide
counsel on the optimal methods of developing IP holdings
and protecting IP rights so clients can appreciate the most
value from said assets. Even technology transfers, IP audits
and IP asset due diligence, we offer strategic advice on
obtaining valuable intellectual property.

The firm’s IP lawyers represent clients ranging from large multinational corporations to individual inventors, authors and owners of creative works. A sampling of matters the IP Practice Group handles includes biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, consumer products (particularly in the food and home and personal care categories), entertainment, media, franchising, distribution, trade secret matters and licensing projects. Our IP attorneys also assist clients in disputes regarding rights of privacy and publicity, antitrust, Internet and e-commerce issues.

Patents

We are very active in terms of patent filing and protection.
Our firms represent clients in patent disputes involving a
wide variety of complex technologies, including
biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, business systems and
methods, computer systems and software, Internet- and
email-related technologies, telecommunications equipment,
electronic instruments, semiconductor manufacturing,
consumer products, chemical processes and products,
manufacturing processes and equipment, factory
automation, security and monitoring equipment, oil drilling,
and water treatment and purification systems, to name a few.

Clients rely on our knowledge of obtaining patentability opinions, prepare and file U.S. patent applications in all subject matters and disciplines, and render validity and infringement opinions. Our Intellectual Property attorneys thoroughly grasp the science and technology behind each client’s ideas. All of the firm’s patent lawyers and agents have science or engineering backgrounds and most have real-world experience in their respective disciplines.

When our IP attorneys enter a courtroom, they are adept at explaining complex technical issues in a straightforward manner and presenting our client’s story to the judge and jurors in the most compelling way possible. We handle patent litigation for large and small corporations as well as individual inventors and start-up enterprises. We also are experienced in conducting interference proceedings before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

We help our clients in multiple industries understand how to maximize the value of patents, and we appreciate the importance of carefully managing and implementing patent portfolios for the benefit of their businesses. Our patent litigators combine mastery in trial advocacy, an in-depth knowledge of patent law, an aptitude for science and technology and a focus on our clients’ business objectives. We represent clients in enforcing their patents, defending against claims of patent infringement, and disputes concerning inventorship and ownership of patents, and patent licenses. Litigators have played a leading role in some of the most important cases in the field of patent law, as well as some of the most complex (including one of the largest patent cases ever tried before the International Trade Commission).

Trademarks and Copyrights

Our Intellectual Property attorneys assist clients in obtaining trademarks and copyrights, perform searches and render registrability opinions. We file and maintain thousands of applications to register trademarks, current trademark registrations and copyrights each year in the U.S. We also coordinate with our international networks of law firms to file and maintain thousands of trademark applications and registrations throughout the world.

We help clients establish, enforce and challenge trademark rights, both in the United States and abroad. We also counsel clients in trade dress and unfair competition matters under Section 43(a) of the Lanham Act as well as matters involving both IP and antitrust laws such as tying arrangements and covenants not to compete, and disputes regarding publishing rights and piracy.

Our IP trial lawyers litigate trademark claims in federal courts throughout the country, the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board and the International Trade Commission. We have recovered thousands of domain names from cybersquatters, and we counsel clients on domain name strategies, domain name acquisition and the protection of IP rights on the Internet, including through international proceedings of ICANN and WIPO. Our attorneys also have significant experience with pharmaceutical trademark and trade dress matters.

We focus on protecting the goodwill and brand value that our clients have worked to develop through their trademarks and trade dress, and handle an array of disputes, including those concerning consumer product trademarks, business names, trademark dilution, trademark counterfeiting, false advertising, and clothing and accessory designs and other forms of trade dress.

We often represent copyright owners in actions against people and businesses that sell infringing items. Similarly, we represent composers, authors, software developers and publishers in protecting their copyrighted works against unauthorized copying, distribution and performance. Our lawyers have obtained ex parte orders to seize counterfeit goods under both the copyright and trademark laws.

Trade Secrets

Trade secrets can be among the most valuable intellectual property in a company, reflecting cutting edge innovations, competitive advantage and the contributions of key personnel. Our firm works tirelessly and creatively to protect, maintain and enforce their clients’ trade secret rights and to vigorously defend them against claims for trade secret misappropriation across a range of industries and technologies, including among others, Internet and e-commerce, data storage, software, video games, aerospace, satellites, genetics, medical devices, biopharmaceuticals, tamper resistant seals, cosmetics, energy, oil and gas, chemical, e-cigarettes, power amplifiers, financial services, paper, aluminum casting, construction and the food industry.

Our team consists of accomplished intellectual property, trial and employment lawyers who collaborate to handle and resolve trade secret issues and allegations when they arise, and to prevent and preempt them where feasible. We advise and counsel clients on best practices for trade secret protection and enforcement, and conduct and direct pre-litigation trade secret investigations using experienced professionals and cutting edge forensic tools.

Intellectual Property Litigation

In today’s legal environment, however, only a small percentage of cases go to trial. Thus, it is crucial to have counsel who is focused on clients’ business objectives and the most cost-effective means of achieving those objectives. If a creative business resolution is in order, we will litigate the case in a manner that will drive the case toward such a resolution. We also have extensive experience in the use of alternative dispute resolution mechanisms. From the outset of each case, we explore with our clients the potential risks, opportunities and costs associated with various strategies for dispute resolution, including litigation, mediation, arbitration and negotiated settlements.

FAQ’s

  • What grounds do I need to file for divorce?
    • New York is a no-fault jurisdiction which means the most commonly cited cause is IRRETRIEVABLE BREAKDOWN IN RELATIONSHIP. So, for example, if your spouse had adultery, it is not really relevant to the actual divorce grounds.
  • Do I file a contested divorce or an uncontested divorce?
    • Uncontested means both parties agree to sign a settlement outside of court and are relatively close in terms of what they want in the terms.
  • How much does the divorce process cost?
    • Uncontested divorces are considerably cheaper, the range is between $1,000-$3,000 depending on complexity. For a contested divorce, it will depend on how willing the spouses are to work together, if so, it can cost as little as $7,000 but if there is excessive fighting the divorce can last years and the sky is the limit.
  • How long before I am officially divorced?
    • Fortunately, NY is not a state that requires a separation period. So as long as you and your spouse have been married for at least 6 months and are an NY resident, you can begin the process immediately. If the divorce is not contested it can be completed in as fast as two months and may take as long as eight months. If the divorce is contested and the parties find it challenging to agree, divorce can go on for many years.
