Lawyers failed to Protect Client’s Intellectual Property
A law firm was hired to protect a client’s intellectual property. The law firm failed to take the time to fully understand the client’s creation and to properly advise the client on how to best protect it. The law firm drafted documents that failed to provide the client with the greatest protection, and when a competitor brought a similar creation to market the client discovered the error made by the lawyers. The lawyers denied any wrongdoing and claimed too much time had passed to hold them responsible. The case settled for a confidential amount.
