Hillyer Legal has an impressive track record bringing and defending trademark infringement and related actions involving a broad group of products and services.

Intellectual property insurance enables companies to protect their products, revenue and assets, all of which are essential to continued economic growth and success. Hillyer Legal distinguishes itself as one of the few law firms that not only has a wealth of experience with the application of such policies, but also has strong contacts with brokerage groups, managing agents and carriers that provide these risk management solutions. The result is the ready availability of financial resources necessary to cover litigation expenses associated with intellectual property litigation.
Our firm can address a wide variety of issues that fall under the intellectual property umbrella. These include copyrights, trade secrets, false advertising, unfair competition, due diligence, freedom to operate, opinion work, portfolio management, valuation, patentability studies, ownership disputes, clearance, searches, design arounds, risk analysis, expert services and compliance with administrative agencies such as Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
Post-grant proceedings are mechanisms that serve to challenge the validity and scope of an issued patent. These include ex parte reexamination (EPX), inter partes review (IPR) and post-grant review (PGR). These proceedings can serve as a cost-effective means for staying litigation, improving claim construction, promoting licensing and enabling settlements. Our attorneys are well-positioned to provide effective counsel at each stage of the process from preliminary diligence in consideration of bringing or defending a post-grant proceeding through the hearing before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.
By its nature, intellectual property relies heavily on commercial transactions. Our firm provides strategic advice to individuals and corporate entities of all size regarding such transactions to help them decrease the risk and maximize the value of their intellectual property across a wide range of business sectors. Our experience with assignments, licenses, settlements, non-disclosure agreements, covenants and contracts put our attorneys in a unique position to assist with these services.
