Local Counsel

Leason Ellis operates in a global arena as a full service IP boutique with both an international reputation and hometown familiarity.  We often serve as “local counsel” for other law firms (both larger and smaller) located throughout the United States and abroad in federal cases pending in the U.S. District Court for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York.  Indeed, we routinely commence and defend IP lawsuits in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and White Plains on behalf of foreign and domestic clients and have enjoyed great success appearing before the jurists in those forums, including numerous victories on summary judgment, and at trial.

This is an action for copyright infringement. The defendant is represented by counsel in Seattle, Washington. This is their second time using Leason Ellis. We provide research and general advice in addition to the usual local counsel services.
