Reed Smith’s extensive familiarity and understanding of industry technologies and state and federal regulations, backed by a group of talented and respected litigators, allows us to aggressively address and resolve any client trade secret or unfair competition issue. Our lawyers have won major cases through jury and bench trials at the state and federal levels by obtaining several preliminary injunctions, summary judgments and seizure orders. We can secure such advantageous results because we have taken the time to develop relationships with and experience in front of judges in numerous jurisdictions. Our lawyers work with each client to identify their trade secrets to prevent misappropriation and costly litigation, and to aggressively develop clients’ internal trade secret policies, including drafting various contracts, agreements and external submission policies.
Our lawyers possess a significant and deep knowledge of complex technology and its implications with regard to intellectual property law. Our unrivaled ability to handle complex technology is backed by our litigation experience and backgrounds in chemical, electrical, mechanical, metallurgical, and nuclear engineering; biochemistry; molecular biology; organic chemistry; materials science; optics; nanotechnology; bioinformatics; systems and software engineering; and other specialized technologies. From our patent lawyers to our IP trial lawyers, we possess the litigation skills necessary to take cases to trial and respond to or initiative emergency proceedings and interim relief, based on the technological issue and ramifications, and the client’s business objectives.
