Lead and Local Counsel IP Litigation – Southern District of Florida

Lott & Fischer’s intellectual property litigators have extensive experience handling all types of IP-related litigation in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida. We routinely serve as lead and local counsel for parties located in other states and around the world.

With offices in Coral Gables, we are intimately familiar with the federal district court in Miami, and we also regularly handle litigation in the Southern District’s Fort Lauderdale, Fort Pierce, Key West and West Palm Beach courthouses.

IP Litigation Matters We Handle in Florida’s Southern District

As an intellectual property law firm, our entire practice is devoted to helping our clients protect their intangible assets. We assist our clients with all facets of IP protection—from registration and portfolio management to strategic IP licensing, but our bread and butter is IP litigation in Florida’s federal courts. Within our IP litigation practice, we represent both plaintiffs and defendants in matters involving:

Patent Litigation

We handle litigation involving design, utility and plant patents as both plaintiff’s counsel and defense counsel in the Southern District of Florida. This includes litigation involving patent eligibility and patent infringement—among a wide range of other substantive and procedural issues.

Trademark Litigation

We handle trademark litigation involving infringement claims, claims that trademarks are generic or descriptive, challenges to incontestability, and priority disputes—among other issues. Several of our lawyers have substantial experience litigating trademark-related disputes in the Southern District.

Copyright Litigation

We serve as lead and local counsel for copyright litigation filed in the Southern District’s Miami courthouse and other locations. Many of these cases involve studios and other entertainment-industry clients who regularly call upon our lawyers to help them protect their exclusive rights.

Trade Secret Litigation

We serve as lead and local counsel for IP litigation in the Southern District of Florida involving trade secret disputes as well. While trade secrets are not eligible for registration under federal law, there are still strong protections available, and pursuing litigation promptly can be critical for preserving the value of companies’ proprietary information.

Litigation Involving IP Transactions

Along with serving as counsel for litigation involving potential impairment of IP owners’ statutory and common law rights, we also serve as counsel for litigation arising out of IP-related transactions. Since our lawyers also draft and negotiate licenses, technology transfers and other IP-related agreements, we are extremely well-versed in the key contract terms, and we rely on our insights from both negotiations and litigation to develop informed and effective litigation strategies.
