Litigation Services

Thrive IP® provides comprehensive litigation services regarding intellectual property and related business matters. Our experience includes asserting and defending patent, copyright, trade secret, and trademark rights, and related claims, on behalf of clients in federal and state courts and other quasi-judicial bodies such as the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB), the Copyright Claims Board (CCB), WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center, and the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). We stand ready to assert or defend patent rights at the PTAB in inter partes reviews (IPR), post grant reviews (PGR), and covered business method (CBM) reviews, as well as trial in the various U.S. District Courts and appeals in the various U.S. Court of Appeals including the Federal Circuit (CAFC) and the Fourth Circuit. Our experience also includes litigating issues of Copyright Fraud and Misuse, as well as Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) patent challenges under the Hatch-Waxman Act.  We also bring experience in addressing other complicated questions of intellectual property infringement, validity, and enforceability. Still further, we have resolved many matters such as allegations of counterfeit goods sales without the need for litigation. But if litigation cannot be avoided, our goal remains to reach a favorable resolution for our clients as quickly and as cost-effectively as possible at any stage of the litigation by applying the highest degree of technological and legal understanding to the dispute. We also strive to minimize diversion of precious time and resources so that our clients can conduct their businesses and lives with as little disruption as possible. That approach does not render litigation cost-free, but recognizes that businesses require efficient legal service to remain viable.
