Laubscher & Fretwell, P.C. excels at delivering winning legal strategies in high-stakes intellectual property disputes, including patent, copyright, trademark, false advertising, licensing, ITC Section 337 and trade secret matters.  We work with start-ups to major international corporations, and develop litigation strategies tailored to each client's definition of success.  We invest the time and resources to develop an effective and efficient relationship with our clients that produces better results, reduces costs, and improves the quality of legal services provided.

Our lawyers understand our clients' businesses and the critical role that IP plays in a highly competitive landscape.  We understand the use of litigation as part of a broader intellectual property strategy that directly contributes to competitive success.  

We know how to help our clients protect their intellectual property, but also understand the challenges when all their hard work seems threatened by an unjustified threat or lawsuit.  Through our representations of both plaintiffs and defendants, we have a strategic outlook that better positions our clients to achieve the best possible outcomes.

Our lawyers have experience in significant intellectual property litigation venues across the country, including the Eastern District of Virginia; the Northern District of Illinois; the Northern, Central and Southern Districts of California; the Northern and Eastern District of Texas; the District of Delaware; and before the U.S. International Trade Commission.
