What could I do instead of going to court?

Most intellectual property disputes can be resolved without a courtroom trial.  Often, an acceptable solution can be reached through negotiation and discussion, either through lawyers (helpful if you aren’t on speaking terms) or with the comfort of legal advice to support your position.  More formal options include mediation and arbitration, which can have the benefit of confidentiality that may not be available in a courtroom.  There are also specific avenues for dispute resolution in particular types of cases,  For example, domain name dispute resolution procedures, advertising standards complaints, and corporate “take down” policies operated by many social media and other online businesses.  We can explain all of your options for any particular case.
