The SHB Intellectual Property & Technology Litigation Practice regularly handles patent, trademark and copyright infringement cases, as well as trade secret violation cases, in state and federal courts throughout the country. Moreover, SHB intellectual property attorneys recognize that these issues frequently overlap with other areas of the law. Their first objective in today's global business environment is to avoid costly litigation through extensive client counseling. This dual focus on preventative advising and resourceful defense takes advantage of the firm's established practitioners in international law, licensing, antitrust, franchising, and products liability.

In addition, the SHB intellectual property team supplements its patent and trademark practice with a state-of-the-art graphics department and a jury research staff. At a fraction of the cost demanded by outside consultants, SHB graphics specialists work to create sophisticated demonstrative exhibits on an expedited basis, while jury analysts examine complex litigation issues from a juror's perspective. As testimony to this competitive edge, three Fortune 250 companies have named SHB litigators to ALM's “Who Represents America's Biggest Companies.”
