Through his Intellectual Property (IP) and Litigation practices, Hunter creates barriers to entry that can keep competitors at bay and help clients maintain and grow their market share. Whether navigating and resolving corporate disputes or prosecuting patents for new innovations, trademarks for branding, or copyrights for works of authorship, Hunter strives to maximize the value and utility of his clients’ IP. As part of his litigation practice, Hunter serves as both a litigator and a certified mediator. As a mediator, Hunter helps negotiate timely and cost effective resolutions in the most contentious and complex commercial disputes. As a litigator, Hunter aggressively defends his clients while developing litigation strategies that are mindful of the fact that a “win” does not always require a court-room victory.
Through his focus on patents, Hunter keenly understands not only the patent prosecution process but also how to enforce and defend against claims of patent infringement. He has also prosecuted hundreds of trademark applications that resulted in federal registration. Hunter has litigated numerous disputes before the U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board and has extensive experience in branding enforcement through his litigation of lawsuits involving claims of trademark and copyright infringement throughout the country.
Hunter understands IP law is about more than protection and enforcement. It is about promoting progress. His goal is to assist companies in maximizing the value of their intangible assets, increasing market share and strengthening their competitive advantage. Through patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets and cooperative strategic planning, Hunter works closely with his clients to keep them secure and ready for continued expansion.
