Litigation and Enforcement

DeVore & DeMarco LLP is comprised of experienced trial lawyers, trained at the best New York law firms and as federal prosecutors at the United States Attorney’s Office. We have tried numerous cases to jury verdict and have represented corporations and individuals in all phases of civil and criminal litigation. Our attorneys have the experience to quickly analyze and assess the nature of a dispute and to develop creative and aggressive strategies for handling those disputes effectively and efficiently. And as a boutique firm, we are able to provide personal attention and responsiveness to every one of our clients in every matter we handle.

We have broad experience in all areas of commercial litigation, and have developed particular expertise in the following areas:

  • Copyright and trademark infringement
  • Theft-of-trade-secret investigations and litigation
  • Data breach litigation
  • Digital rights disputes
  • Digital piracy
  • Identity theft
  • Computer fraud and abuse
  • Consumer deception actions, including adware and spyware litigation
  • Cybersquatting and domain name abuse
  • Electronic eavesdropping
  • Cyberstalking

We also counsel our clients on litigation alternatives and how best to protect their rights and themselves against allegations of infringement or other improper conduct, and have vindicated the rights of commercial and intellectual property rights-holders outside the courtroom. As counselors, we have:

  • Developed comprehensive preventative and anti-piracy programs
  • Developed and administered investigational IP programs without notice to identified infringers as well as formal cease-and-desist programs
  • Advised on potential liability issues arising from the use or sharing of on-line content
  • Investigated and advised on alleged infringements
  • Advised on prioritization of targets, pre-litigation strategy, and implementation of that strategy
  • Referred cases to U.S. and foreign law enforcement agencies for enforcement actions

As technology litigators, we are also uniquely suited to handle the numerous challenges arising from changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure relating to electronic discovery, and to assist in the development and implementation of sensible e-discovery programs.
