Intellectual Property Litigation

Client Testimonials

Our clients often endorse us heartily and without reservation:

When SmartSound was faced with the need to protect a critical software patent, a search of many firms led us to Quarles & Brady. They were quick to understand our technology and formulate a strategy that would be most beneficial to our business objectives. Developing a strong case and then executing a precisely timed strategy gave our company the leverage we needed. —Geoff Hufford, Vice President Development, SmartSound Software Inc.

Quarles & Brady provided our companies and employees with superb support during a recent trade secret lawsuit, resulting in a timely, cost-effective, and strategically appropriate settlement with an overly aggressive opponent. Quarles & Brady was consistently available to us irrespective of the time of day, weekends, or holidays and made extraordinary efforts to be available to our board of directors as needed. Our positive experience with Quarles & Brady gives us every reason to recommend its services to others, and to re-engage Quarles & Brady, should the need arise. —Charles W. Bishop, Ph.D., President & CEO, Cytochroma Inc.

The IP litigation team at Quarles & Brady has tackled complex intellectual property matters for us, distilled them down to their essence, focused on the critical issues, developed successful litigation strategies, and battled opposing counsel where necessary. Their lawyers know how to win. The complexity and importance of IP cases demand the skills of lawyers who focus on IP litigation. This focus by our Quarles team translates to effective legal services delivered in a cost-effective manner. —General Counsel, Epic Systems Corporation

In a patent dispute involving our most important drug discovery to date, we called upon the IP Litigation team at Quarles & Brady to defend Pharmasset, based in part on the Quarles team’s extensive experience with technology transfer. The team delivered a complete victory at trial, including invalidating the patents asserted against Pharmasset. I would not hesitate to recommend the team to any other company facing a patent dispute. —P. Schaefer Price, Chief Executive Officer, Pharmasset, Inc.

The Quarles & Brady IP Litigation Team knows how to approach complex intellectual property matters and to reduce the story to a simplified form so that the judge and jury can understand the science involved and the critical issues in dispute. They are also very much committed to winning, and it shows. I have hired the IP Litigation Team for several cases, not only because of their litigation abilities but also because of the team’s ability to communicate and manage a case with me to arrive at a successful outcome. —David Kettner, Chief Intellectual Property Counsel, Virent Energy Systems, Inc. and former Chief Legal Counsel for Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF)
