IP Litigation, Arbitration, and Alternative Dispute Resolution
As your IP becomes more successful and grows in value, it's no surprise that it can become the source of commercial disputes. We value quick and amicable settlements. Where necessary, we will vigorously defend your position. We break down complex matters to make them clear and understandable to courts.
We have more than 260 IP litigators worldwide. You benefit from our unified strategic approach when dealing with cross-border disputes. Whether you find yourself in arbitration or recuperation procedures with WIPO, in the ITC, U.S. Supreme Court, the CJEU, or even the European Court of Human Rights – there is little we haven't seen. With the formidable support of our appellate practice, Hogan Lovells is the firm to have on your side.
