Infringement of a client’s intellectual property rights often requires immediate action. The client could face significant loss or have its entire business threatened if delays occur. The lawyer is often faced with a number of possible causes of action and procedural options. Making the best choices at the outset can strongly enhance the prospects of a favourable outcome for the client, whether through a negotiated resolution or litigation.
