The natural complement to litigation is arbitration and mediation. Maschoff Brennan has extensive experience moderating disputes in the highly technical areas of patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, and licensing disputes, among other intellectual property matters. Our team has handled all types of commercial disputes in domestic and international arbitrations governed by the rules of AAA and ICDR, JAMS, CPR, the ICC, UNCITRAL, the Japanese Commercial Arbitration Association, as well as ad hoc proceedings.
Arbitration provisions are common in IP license agreements. With Maschoff Brennan attorneys’ technical expertise, our attorneys are exceptionally suited to assist clients with arbitration in IP disputes. Our litigators have handled high-value arbitrations involving cellular telecommunications standards licenses, IT outsourcing, software development, audiovisual equipment, trademark licensing, franchise disputes, semiconductor manufacturing, and other technology license agreements. We have also handled international arbitrations involving large international industrial construction projects, IT outsourcing, and mining. Bringing together in-depth technical knowledge and a firm grasp of the strategic and procedural intricacies of arbitration, we are committed to providing the best service available to our clients in arbitration.
Our clients benefit from our memberships in several well-recognized professional arbitration and mediation organizations, including the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR) Panel of Arbitrators, the American Arbitration Association Roster of Commercial Arbitrators, and the CPR Panel of Distinguished Neutrals.
Our team also includes certified mediators who have successfully brought parties together to reach fair and reasonable settlement agreements. Our mediators focus on achieving results efficiently, thereby allowing businesses to avoid the typical costs and aggravations of litigation. Again, the years of experience our attorneys hold in litigating, arbitrating, and prosecuting patent rights puts them in the unique position of being able to offer cogent guidance to parties in mediation and quickly reach that elusive middle ground.
