Applying decades of collective experience, we advance the interests of our clients as both advisors and clients. Our deep understanding of the needs of entrepreneurs and small and mid-sized businesses enables us to “test the edges” to achieve the best possible legal outcomes – sometimes setting legal precedent through litigation, other times defining the rules through legislation or regulation.

In cases that require litigation, Sequel Technology & IP Law offers its clients exceptional judgment, depth of knowledge about the subject and years of experience involving copyright, trademark, trade secret, unfair competition, consumer protection, false advertising, and patent infringement. Sequel also handles business litigation, such as breach of contract, enforcement of non-competition agreements, business fraud, deceptive trade practices, and termination of distributors. With a keen awareness of the stakes involved for our clients, our measured approach is designed to save clients money while positioning them for the advantage. Sequel welcomes contingency fee cases. We are willing to share with our clients some of the risk associated with enforcing IP rights. Our first step is to evaluate claims to identify only those possessing the highest degree of merit. When an appropriate claim is identified, we will work with investment entities to structure a transaction to spread the risk of unlocking the value of larger IP claims. There are other instances in which a client may need us to handle just a portion of litigation, such as e-Discovery, to keep the costs down. Several members of our team have strong investigative and analytic backgrounds. Leveraging that expertise, we can help with just the discovery portion of litigation as a part of a collaborative team. As part of our services we offer a cloud computing and document storage solution to make e-Discovery a bit more manageable for everyone. These efforts are supported by our document processor — Digital WarRoom, with which we have a close and effective working relationship.
