Problems We Solve: Litigation

Litigation, either from or against your company, can be unnerving and complex.  We work with our clients to understand the consequences and opportunities involved in litigation, and help them ensure that business still runs as smoothly as possible.  Our clients rely on us for assistance with all stages of litigation involving everything from intellectual property to contract disputes, including trademark and patent work, alleging or defending against allegations of breach of contract, temporary restraining orders, and more.  We also routinely work with companies encountering allegations from the government, particularly FDA’s Office of Criminal Investigation (OCI), helping our clients respond to allegations or investigations and defend against government enforcement proceedings.

We also have substantial expertise in the area of customs and trade, both at the agency level and at court. In particular, our customs attorney Jessica Rifkin has successfully litigated a number of HTSUS classification cases before the Court of International Trade and the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and has successfully contested adverse antidumping and countervailing duty scope rulings before the Court of International Trade.

We focus on the details of litigation, so you can focus on your business.
