Intellectual Property


The ability to protect intellectual property rights is often the key to maintaining competitive advantage in a changing marketplace. In this information-technology age, it is no longer enough to develop and obtain intellectual property rights. To be successful, companies must be vigilant in maintaining and enforcing those rights as well. At Neil Dymott, we aid our clients in those efforts.

Neil Dymott attorneys represent businesses and individuals seeking to protect intellectual property rights such as trade secrets and patent disputes. We defend against claims of infringement or misappropriation in state and federal courts. Our attorneys have assisted national and international corporations with intellectual property disputes in the San Diego area.

Litigation, arbitration and mediation are fundamental tools for enforcing or defending boundaries of intellectual property, and are a critical part of any comprehensive intellectual property strategy. Whether aggressive action, amicable negotiation, or a combination of both, our extensive experience allows us to craft litigation strategies uniquely tailored to achieve particular client objectives. If litigation is necessary, Neil Dymott attorneys have an excellent record of success in the courtroom. Our attorneys efficiently and effectively handle all details and issues, which may arise at any stage of both simple and complex litigation.

Neil Dymott attorneys have over 40 years as experienced trial attorneys and possess superior technical and legal expertise.
