With an emphasis on practical problem solving, we have done extensive work in the following areas: Intellectual Property Patent litigation Trademark litigation International Trade Commission proceedings Prosecution and defense of business frauds Contract litigation Corporate partnership disputes and shareholder derivative actions Product liability litigation Labor disputes involving high profile executives Prosecuting professional liability claims Class action litigation Anti-trust litigation Health care regulation Handal & Associates team of seasoned litigators blend their mature business experience with a common sense approach to arrive at practical solutions. Our goal is to deliver satisfactory results at a reasonable cost.
6 OUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY PRACTICE Handal & Associates has extensive experience handling its clients Intellectual Property needs including copyright and patent infringement litigation, intellectual property licensing negotiations, licensing programs, prosecuting patents in association with qualified patent practitioners, and handling trademark/lanham Act disputes. Additionally, the firm is experienced in handling and litigating Section 337 actions before the United States International Trade Commission. On the licensing side, the firm has acted as lead negotiator in a number of high profile intellectual property acquisitions, including the RCA brand from Thomson. The firm also acted as lead negotiator in connection with the acquisition of other intellectual properties including GE and Hamilton Beach brands for kitchen electronics. The firm regularly associates with licensed patent attorneys in order to facilitate the prosecution of patents for our clients. With a strong understanding of consumer electronics, manufacturing and electrical engineering, Handal & Associates is keenly positioned to assist clients and manage their intellectual property rights.
7 OUR SECTION 337 PRACTICE Section 337 investigations, which are conducted by the United States International Trade Commission, most often involve claims regarding intellectual property rights, including allegations of patent and trademark infringement by importers of goods. The primary remedy available in Section 337 investigations is an exclusion order that directs Untied States Customs to stop infringing imports from crossing the border. The Commission may also issue cease and desist orders against named importers and other persons engaged in unfair acts that violate Section 337. Expedited relief in the form of temporary exclusion orders and temporary cease and desist orders may also be available in certain exceptional circumstances. Section 337 investigations, which are conducted pursuant to 19 U.S.C and the Administrative Procedure Act, include trial proceedings before administrative law judges and review by the International Trade Commission. As such Section 337 investigations have become powerful weapons to keep infringing products out of the United States. Used effectively, the holder of United States patents can wage war on foreign competition in ways that traditional patent litigation does not. Whether you are a company seeking to exclude infringing products or a company that is subject to a Section 337 action aimed at keeping your products out of the Untied States, you need a skilled and experienced lawyer by your side because the rules in such proceedings are different, rigid and extremely complicated. Section 337 proceedings are therefore highly technical and expensive. Handal & Associates is but one of a small number of firms big or small - in the United States that handles Section 337 matters. We have handled several and recently tried a Section 337 action before the honorable Chief Administrative Judge Charles Bullock. The matter was hard fought and our client bet the company on a victory over a much bigger and better funded foe. The lawyers at Handal & Associates battled against the worlds largest law firm that claimed to have never lost an ITC Section 337 action, ultimately gaining not only a finding of no violation of Section 337 for its client, but also a finding that many of the asserted patent claims against our client were invalid.
8 TRANSACTIONAL PRACTICE Handal & Associates has been engaged in a number of corporate transactional matters. The firm has acted as lead negotiator in a number of high profile business acquisitions involving intellectual properties, real estate, and business units.
