License Disputes

The attorneys at Robins Kaplan LLP have achieved victories on both sides of the courtroom in complex, high-stakes licensing disputes involving the intersection of contracts and intellectual property. Our plaintiff successes include a $320 million judgment for the licensor in a breach-of-contract dispute over intellectual property rights. Successes for defendants have included complete defense verdicts for licensees in disputes with hundreds of millions of dollars and attorney’s fees at stake. Because of these and other client results, we have earned a reputation as a premier firm to handle license disputes when the stakes are at their highest.

Our deep litigation and trial experience provides the lens through which we create and maximize commercial advantage for our clients. This vision extends beyond the courtroom. We also help clients develop a superior bargaining position in negotiations over technology by analyzing existing license agreements to inform strategic business decisions. When the rights to use and profit from high-value intellectual property have or may become contested, our courtroom accomplishments, results-driven advocacy, and keen strategic insights make Robins Kaplan a go-to firm for complex IP license dispute representation.
