Take Action Against Patent Infringement with The Elliott Law Firm, PLLC

Although patents are presumed valid, they can be challenged in court or in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) through the recently enacted inter partes review process. A patent is not a self-enforcing document, and any acts of infringement often need to be prosecuted by filing a legal action. Our legal team is well-versed in obtaining and evaluating patents, rendering freedom-to-operate opinions, and litigating patents in federal court, the USPTO, and the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

In all cases, we consider flexible fee arrangements, including contingent-fee arrangements, hourly billing at reasonable rates, discounted billing, and blended-fee arrangements. In certain contingent fee cases, the client will be obligated to pay all or a portion of court costs and expenses, and in other cases there will be no obligation unless a recovery is secured.
