The Whitaker Law Group is focused on helping clients protect their intellectual property rights, frequently through litigation and licensing. Our practice includes all aspects of intellectual property law, with a special emphasis on the litigation of intellectual property disputes. In addition, WLG is keen to offer its clients alternative billing arrangements to help simplify or ease the burden that generally comes from the legal and litigation process.
Contingent Fee Copyright Lawyers
The Whitaker Law Group understands that most smaller clients simply cannot afford the legal bills that would otherwise be necessary to see a complex copyright infringement lawsuit all the way through. Because of the inherent imbalance of power in disputes between small entities and large entities, the Whitaker Law Group frequently represents clients on a contingent fee basis. This allows our clients to mount a much more substantial offensive case without fear that the infringer will simply out-spend them. We find that the contingent fee relationship allows us to align our interests with those of the client to provide better representation which is more efficient, effective and goal-driven.
Our services also include helping companies acquire patent rights for computer software and hardware, electronics, telecommunications, networks and other related technologies as well as counseling clients on intellectual property portfolio management, patent invalidity and non-infringement issues, freedom-to-practice concerns, and other issues related to intellectual property.
Pro Se Legal Services
WLG can also work with cost-conscious clients to provide so-called Pro Se Legal Services, sometimes called “unbundled legal services.” For those clients who feel comfortable handling some or much of their own legal affairs, but who need assistance with the more complex tasks, unbundled legal services might be for you. Pay only for the particular service that you need, without committing to a full-service representation. Pay only for the services you want, not what your lawyer wants. This program allows clients to buy legal services almost à la carte.
