First and foremost, Emory Legal’s practitioners are litigation attorneys with unparalleled experience in the courtroom. This familiarity and comfort with the entirety of the litigation process allows our clients to engage an opponent with the confidence that comes from having seasoned jurists on their team. At Emory Legal, we know efficient, aggressive, and persuasive advocacy, not obstructionist gamesmanship, wins trials.
From the outset, we work tirelessly with our clients until the controversy resolves by way of settlement, judgment, or verdict. We begin with the development of a comprehensive understanding of the factual and legal issues facing each client. Our practice continues with the deliberate, thoughtful marshalling of evidence, in the most cost-effective and advantageous manner possible. This means keeping discovery, and any of its attendant battles, to a minimum; we build the tools and weapons we need to prevail, rather than those needed to stall and delay. Furthermore, by deploying state-of-the-art litigation and discovery-management systems, we are able to conserve precious time and money, thereby easing the burden of litigation on our clients.
The foundation of our approach to litigation rests on each client’s business and legal objectives. As a result, our attorneys constantly seek strategies to win and opportunities to advance our client’s interests. While ever-mindful of trial, we also work with clients to recognize and exploit instances where early resolution, through informal negotiation, mediation, or arbitration, may be possible.
We enjoy a depth of expertise across a wide array of subject matter areas. With particular emphasis on highly complex intellectual property cases, such as, enforcing intellectual property rights and defending against charges of patent, copyright, or trademark infringement, unfair competition, and misappropriation of trade secrets. Our litigation practice also focuses on a variety of business-related cases, such as fraud, breach-of-contract, licensing disputes, and other business related disputes.
