Enforcing your intellectual property rights
Forge IP attorneys have vast litigation experience, having litigated cases around the country in various courts and at the appellate level. We have a long track record of favorably resolving cases early–via dismissal, summary judgment, or settlement–before racking up significant litigation expenses. In cases where an early resolution was not possible, Forge IP’s attorneys have brought cases to trial and prevailed. Below are a few examples of the various cases in which Forge IP attorneys have successfully represented both Plaintiffs and Defendants.
