At Bartko, we understand that helping our clients protect their valuable IP requires a multi-faceted approach, especially in an increasingly dynamic and fast-changing market. Rights arising from trademarks, copyrights, and technology licensing or joint venture agreements stand among clients’ most critical intellectual property. From the earliest stages of protection through litigation, Bartko’s seasoned attorneys have counseled numerous companies on the best ways to strategically protect their IP and have achieved outstanding results for their clients through trademark, copyright, and technology licensing litigation. Ranging across a broad range of technologies and markets, from cases involving software code theft to brand logo infringement and domain name cybersquatting, our attorneys have successfully tried high-stakes cases to both juries, judges and arbitrators, and achieved top-value settlements.
Our depth of substantive and technical understanding, experience handling complex IP litigation, ability to tailor an approach to each clients’ needs, and willingness to take cases to trial ensure the best possible protection of our clients’ legal interests. Together, we are able to analyze the critical technical issues, develop an effective brand protection strategy, and if necessary, present winning arguments to judges and juries. With these skills, Bartko litigators have secured victory at trial, prevailed in injunctive and other dispositive motion practice, and achieved favorable settlements. We are ranked by Chambers among the top California lawyers in Trademark, Copyright and Trade Secret litigation.
Unlike traditional big firm litigators, we are trial lawyers able to think creatively and practically to help our clients achieve their objectives. The lack of big-firm overhead means that Bartko can cost-effectively handle smaller cases, while at the same time prevailing against some of the largest law firms in the country. Whether a startup or a long-established brand, Bartko can help ensure valuable brand and other essential IP rights are protected and enforced.

Although BartkoZankel is willing and able to take a case to trial to best protect our client’s interests, we understand that sometimes settlement is the prudent way to resolve a dispute. The Firm has an extensive alternative dispute resolution practice, and several of our lawyers are court-approved mediators. We bring this expertise to the table, along with experience licensing intellectual property, to help clients obtain the best possible resolutions.
