The litigation practice of Alexeev & McDaniel LLP is focused on business and intellectual property litigation, intellectual property disputes before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and alternative dispute resolution. The firm’s interdisciplinary approach to client matters means that skilled attorneys from its transactional practices are additional assets to its litigation clients. The firm’s business litigation expertise includes breach of contract claims (including the recovery of money owed), tortious interference with economic opportunities, misrepresentation, shareholder, fiduciary duties, and other disputes involving corporations, and commercial disputes. The firm’s intellectual property dispute capabilities comprise patent, copyright, trademark and trade secrets litigation, oppositions of trademarks, and protests and re-examination proceedings before the USPTO. The firm’s alternative dispute resolution practice focuses on arbitration (which is usually binding), mediation (which is usually non-binding, and requires actual agreement of the parties to be successful), and other methods of resolving disputes outside the context of a lawsuit.
