Litigation is all we do, period.

Patent Litigation

The intellectual property of a business is one of its most valuable assets. The trademarks, patents, copyrights, and trade secrets a business possesses establish its very identity as an organization. When litigation threatens that intellectual property, it is imperative that you protect those rights. The team of patent litigators at Hansen Reynolds have helped businesses from startups to Fortune 500 companies protect their intellectual property from these threats and help them pursue litigation against those who violate their intellectual property.

Government & Constitutional

Litigation involving government entities often proves difficult and expensive for clients. From adverse decisions by government boards to the passage of laws affecting a business, it is often imperative that a business challenge the government’s rules and regulations. The team at Hansen Reynolds has successfully taken such challenges and obtained crucial results for our clients’ businesses.

The team at Hansen Reynolds has the expertise to bring such constitutional challenges. From constitutional bases for rule changes to civil rights violations and Section 1983 litigation, Hansen Reynolds guides clients through successful constitutional challenges to regulations and helps clients obtain relief from violations of their rights.

Probate & Trust Litigation

Wills and trusts are one of the most important methods of managing the financial assets of individuals. Unfortunately, situations arise in which mismanagement of trusts, misconduct of individuals, or other problems arise with wills and trusts that result in litigation. The legal expertise of Hansen Reynolds helps guide our clients through litigation involving wills and trusts, and we work to ensure our clients avoid costly mistakes that can destroy an individual’s financial future.

Pre-Litigation

For many cases, the best resolution for the client is not full-blown litigation, but attempting to solve the client’s problem before litigation becomes necessary. The attorneys at Hansen Reynolds are experienced at determining when mediation or arbitration is a necessary or advantageous way to help resolve a client’s issues. Hansen Reynolds guides our clients through the mediation or arbitration process in a way that hopefully resolves the case without litigation, but also prevents any loss of opportunities for litigation should it become necessary.

Risk Assessment

Many attorneys are quick to encourage a client to pursue litigation, more concerned with their own bottom lines than those of their clients. The attorneys at Hansen Reynolds strive to help you make the best decisions for your business. One of the most important aspects of this process is risk assessment. We work with you to determine the legal merit of your case, the monetary costs associated with the potential of taking a case to trial, and the potential risks involved in the various scenarios litigation raises. The comprehensive and rigorous risk assessment Hansen Reynolds provides may make the difference between turning what should be a minor matter into an expensive and unnecessary piece of litigation.

Appellate Law

The initial stage of litigation does not always end in the result a business wants. When you need to appeal your case to a higher court, the attorneys at Hansen Reynolds have an appellate team that has practiced at all appellate levels of the state and federal court system. Hansen Reynolds has the flexibility to work with your trial team or take over a case for any necessary appellate work, as well as the experience to mobilize quickly to meet deadlines that arise almost immediately after any unfavorable decision of a lower court. For those who need to protect their interests in a case in which they are not a litigant, Hansen Reynolds can help you navigate the appellate system as a friend of the court (amicus) to ensure that you or your organization’s views on an issue are heard and considered.
