Litigation & Alternative Dispute Resolution

The CDAS litigation group handles copyright, trademark, privacy and publicity, First Amendment, contract, and business litigation arising in the firm’s core industry areas, including entertainment, art, music, publishing, and digital and traditional media.

We successfully manage litigation matters at all phases—including through trials and appeals—for a wide range of clients, from some of the most well-known companies in the world to closely held businesses, individuals, and estates. Our team represents litigants and amicus parties in innovative intellectual property, entertainment, and media cases in federal and state court, in arbitration, and before the USPTO. CDAS litigators also provide litigation-avoidance counseling, mediation services, and intellectual property best practices to clients of all sizes and in various disciplines to help mitigate and minimize legal risks.
