PQE has extensive experience in litigating patent infringement lawsuits. In patent lawsuits, one of the most important aspects of the case is claim construction. In these claim construction hearings, also known as a Markman hearing the scope of the claims of the patent are argued. Whether you are a patent owner or an accused infringer, you want attorneys that understand the importance of this aspect of the case and that can advance your positions to the court. We are also well versed in many cutting-edge issues in patent litigation, such as Alice and venue challenges.
Patent litigation can be long and costly. PQE understands that few companies and individuals have open pocket-books. Most litigants that are capable of paying hourly fees expect attorneys to be cost-conscious and provide highly effective representation. PQE understands these issues. In addition, our firm provides solutions for clients that need legal assistance without incurring out-of-pocket expenses for attorney’s fees by offering contingent-fee arrangements and mixed hourly and contingency arrangements and, flat-fee arrangements.
In addition to our attorneys being licensed to practice in several states and federal courts, PQE also has a long history of joint representation and great relationships with other patent and general firms and may be used to complement their existing counsel.
