Hedrick Gardner’s Business Tort/Intellectual Property Litigation Group understands the significance and value of intellectual property rights to businesses and individuals. We litigate all types of intellectual property disputes, including cases involving claims of patent, trademark, trade dress and copyright infringement, as well as unfair competition, misappropriation of trade secrets, and a variety of related business torts. Our attorneys act quickly and decisively to protect our clients’ intellectual property rights when they are violated, and to defend our clients against unfounded allegations of infringement by others.

Hedrick Gardner’s intellectual property attorneys are, first and foremost, trial attorneys with decades of combined courtroom experience.  Our attorneys have a proven record of successfully litigating intellectual property disputes, and the skill to handle even the most complex cases.

Hedrick Gardner is dedicated to advancing our clients’ business objectives through efficient, cost-effective representation.  Our attorneys recognize that costly and disruptive litigation is not the answer to every intellectual property dispute.  When appropriate, we work closely with our clients to resolve their disputes through all forms of alternative dispute resolution, including mediation and direct negotiation of creative business solutions.  However, when litigation is unavoidable, our attorneys provide effective and zealous representation through all phases of litigation.

We assist our clients in matters involving:

  • Trademark and trade dress infringement
  • Patent litigation
  • Copyright disputes
  • Trade secrets litigation and counseling
  • Unfair competition and deceptive trade practices litigation
  • Advertising injury claims
