In our global, knowledge-based economy, intellectual property (IP) can be the single most important asset a company possesses. Resilient companies safeguard their IP from the moment a concept is generated, until the next big idea comes along. When confronted with IP litigation, sophisticated companies need their legal teams to be informed by experts who can clearly explain underlying technology issues based on a keen understanding of the legal and business concepts that are central to the case.
At Stroz Friedberg, our teams provide expert testimony regarding the technology underlying patent litigation, copyright, trade secret misappropriation, and other intellectual property matters for the most technically complex cases. Whether the objective is to prove infringement or to refute it, our teams efficiently analyze source code, chip designs, and other technical materials to identify and document evidence. Our robust inquiries reflect our extensive experience in system analysis, testing, and reverse engineering.
We also perform technology and market assessments, for example, to help identify the strength of a patent family, or the degree to which an idea is entitled to trade secret protection. In patent cases, our consultants produce focused, high-quality prior art references and claim charts, with minimal need for expensive vetting and editing, helping to minimize legal costs.
Our team possesses superb technical expertise and a solid understanding of intellectual property law. We work effectively with a range of important stakeholders from the board to technical experts, translating complex aspects of a matter for non-technical audiences.
