Ideally, the best counsel and the highest level of vigilance serve to deter would-be copycats and free riders from copying your intellectual property. But sometimes, it is a company's very success that leads to unlawful attempts to copy products or simulate trademarks. In such instances, litigation may be the only way to protect your assets, whether it means securing a prompt injunction, achieving a satisfactory settlement, or proceeding to trial.

Weighing the Costs of Litigation
The decision to undertake litigation should never be taken lightly. It is important that the client always be informed of the costs of litigation - financial as well as in time and resources - as well as the risks and benefits. There may be times when the benefits of defending against even a frivolous claim are outweighed by the likely cost. On the other hand, presenting a strong front, and making clear to the opponent informing that you are prepared to litigate may well increase the likelihood of a negotiated solution that achieves your goals in an economically viable manner.
Weighing the risks and benefits of litigation, not only with respect to any particular infringer, but also as to its overall effect on your intellectual property rights, often involves the consideration of many factors and strategies. Jacobs & Burleigh will thoroughly examine and explain all of these issues, allowing you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed.
