Intellectual Property Litigation

Intellectual Property Litigation

Mandour & Associates is an aggressive intellectual property litigation law firm.  We understand that being aggressive in IP litigation can be time consuming and expensive, so we keep each litigation matter as streamlined as possible by employing a trial-focused strategy.  In other words, from the moment we are hired we determine what will be necessary to win the case at trial and then throughout the matter we stay focused on only that.

We often see wasted time and money in IP litigation because the other side lacks the experience or good sense necessary to say “we don’t need to take this deposition” or “we don’t need to win this battle to win the war.”  Because we regularly litigate intellectual property infringements throughout Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego, we know the most effective strategies to resolve these cases as efficiently as possible.  We do what is necessary to win the case at trial, nothing more, and nothing less.

We handle all types of IP litigation - patent litigation, trademark litigation, unfair competition, trade dress litigation, trade secret litigation, and copyright litigation - and any other business conflicts or ownership disputes that arise from the case.  We also provide pro hac vice and local counsel services.

We have litigated high stakes intellectual property infringements involving well-known companies such as Calvin Klein, Wal-Mart, and Disney.  We are top notch litigators willing to create whatever result is in the best interest of our client.  Below are some of the results that we have achieved for our clients.
