Contingent Fee Patent Litigation Attorneys

Nationwide Representation

For clients seeking an alternative to traditional fee arrangements or who simply can’t afford to pay an attorney by the hour, E&P handles certain cases on a contingent fee, reduced hourly and contingency fee, and other result-oriented fee structures.

Representation on a Contingency Fee Basis

Over the past 25 years, the founding lawyers of Elliott & Polasek have devoted a substantial portion of their practice to representing clients on a contingency fee basis in patent litigation and patent licensing. We have represented independent inventors and small companies who lack the resources to litigate or license their intellectual property against infringers. We have clients worldwide and have litigated cases across the United States.

E&P is also willing to represent large companies seeking a more cost-effective way to enforce their intellectual property on a results-oriented basis. Just as every client is unique, so are the fee arrangements that Elliott & Polasek can offer. Each contingent fee arrangement will set forth the client’s obligation to pay all, a portion, or none of the case expenses.

Mixed Contingency Fee Agreements and Reduced Hourly Rates

The attorneys at Elliott & Polasek understand few companies and individuals have open pocketbooks. Most litigants capable of paying hourly fees expect attorneys to be cost-conscious and efficient, yet provide highly effective representation. E&P understands these concerns and is positioned to meet those objectives by providing clients with an alternative to traditional hourly fee arrangements, such as contingent fee patent litigation.

In addition to a contingency fee option, Elliott & Polasek offers patent litigation and patent licensing representation on a mixed hourly and contingency fee arrangement, flat-fee arrangement, and other result-oriented arrangements. In each instance, their law firm strives to structure a fee agreement that is fair and reasonable to the clients and the firm.

The firm’s founders have also handled copyright infringement, trademark infringement and trade secret cases on a contingency fee.
