Cease and Desist
A cease and desist letter is a useful tool to direct another party to stop unlawful and/or damaging business conduct. This approach is cheaper than a lawsuit and, often, more practical in problem resolution or in cases when time is a factor. They can be useful in a number of circumstances, from trademark infringement to product disparagement.
We can prepare a cease and desist letter for your business to demand an end to unlawful conduct or to request a settlement, financial compensation or some other means of resolution.
If you have received a cease and desist letter, we can help you understand your rights and establish a legal strategy to address it.
To litigate or not to litigate?

In today’s increasingly litigious environment, strategy, experience and good judgment are the keys to business success. When you bring us a legal matter, we will target your core business objectives and determine whether litigation is a necessary, cost-effective, and a likely path to achieve worthwhile goals.
