Commercial Litigation

Let us be the solution for your commercial litigation needs. Our attorneys have extensive experience in the spectrum of commercial litigation, including numerous business tort, fraud and breach of contract cases. 

Intellectual Property Litigation

When matters turn adverse, our clients turn to us. Our attorneys have a long history of representing companies ranging in size from Fortune 500 to small start-up businesses. We litigate cases nationwide - from California to Delaware, and Texas to Illinois. 

Patent Prosecution & PTAB Practice

Our clients are innovators. We protect their innovation. From high-tech to basic mechanics, our registered patent attorneys are skilled at working with inventors to craft patent applications that overcome prior art and are strong enough to be enforced in the court room.

Intellectual Property 


We have a keen eye for identifying our clients' valuable intellectual property assets and maximizing their value. Our attorneys are experienced in helping clients enter partnerships that maximize their IP assets' value while keeping important technology out of the hands of competitors. 

Intellectual Property Counseling & Negotiation

We provide proactive advice concerning the patentability of new inventions or describing the IP landscape in competitive marketplaces. We work with clients to assess the intellectual property implications of new products while they are still being developed - thereby ensuring they always have one leg up on their competition.

"Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but when it comes to being ripped off, that’s a problem. 


As an independent inventor and founder of Autoscribe, I was in exactly that situation. One competitor copied our original software so exactly, it even included some of our bugs.   Bob wasted no time in developing an action plan that resulted in substantial licenses from our largest competitions (including some of the largest banks in the country), through effective negotiation and litigation where it was necessary.

I would recommend Bob’s firm to any inventor with a valuable patent that is being infringed on."

"Art Gasey and Oliver Yang are consummate professionals and they saved our business. These gentlemen are true masters of their craft and extremely detail oriented. Having a pending claim for copyright infringement was a serious impediment to our business, so winning on summary judgment was important. Oliver and Art understood many complex issues and framed them in such a way that the Court got it - and consequently provided a very favorable ruling. "
