IP Litigation

Sudath Perera Associates’ IP litigation team has a global reputation and is ranked highly by Managing Intellectual Property’s World IP Survey, IP Law, Chambers and Partners, and Legal 500.

The firm has experience in advising clients in all aspects of intellectual property litigation before courts and administrative agencies. This includes litigation involving patents, trademarks, copyright, trade secrets, trade dress and unfair competition trade practices.

The key to any successful infringement trial is preparation. Although bold strikes and grand strategies are important, more often careful attention to detail, thorough preparation for trial and carefully written briefs are key to a successful outcome. From assembling the most appropriate team to handle the case, to collecting, producing and reviewing, if necessary, millions of pages of documents, to utilizing mock trials and preparing witnesses, the firm’s meticulous attention to detail is the key to our continued litigation successes.

Sudath Perera Associates recognises that litigation is not always the best solution, especially if it is likely to be protracted. We therefore offer a range of alternatives to traditional litigation, including arbitration proceedings or negotiated settlements.
