Litigation: Protecting your rights in court
A leading player in IP, Cittone & Chinta applies a winning formula to its commercial litigation practice. We understand that the only purpose of litigation is to meet the client’s specific business objectives. We prepare every case with those business objectives in mind. We then work with our client to formulate a strategy for the most cost-effective solution to the problem. When we can best serve our clients by resolving disputes short of trial, we do so. But if necessary, we are prepared to go the long-haul to protect our clients’ rights through trial.
We enforce and defend an array of intellectual property claims for clients, ranging from some of the world’s largest corporations to individual inventors and innovators. Read More…
