Press release from: The Lanier Law Firm

PALO ALTO, Calif. – The Lanier Law Firm, a national litigation firm, is continuing to expand the firm’s operations in Palo Alto, Calif., based on a unique, contingency-fee approach to intellectual property cases where clients pay no fees up front, and the firm gets paid only if it wins.

Unlike many law firms that require clients to pay costly expenses and other charges while their cases are being prepared, The Lanier Law Firm is one of the few trial firms in the country that assumes all expenses for experts and case preparation, allowing many deserving patent owners and inventors to assert their legal rights when they otherwise could not afford to.

“Contingency-fee litigation is ideal for many small companies or independent inventors,” says firm founder Mark Lanier. “Many of our clients lack the financial resources to protect their intellectual property, and that is where we step in to help.”

Patent litigation veteran and Californian Christopher Banys is the Managing Attorney of the firm’s Palo Alto office, where he leads the Intellectual Property Litigation Group.

“Our contingency-fee model has been a tremendous success since we opened our office in Palo Alto last year,” says Mr. Banys, who previously practiced with the law firm of Howrey LLP. “We are extremely confident in the cases we’re handling, and we are committed to helping inventors and companies whose intellectual property rights are infringed, and often stolen.”

No stranger to tough cases, Mr. Banys and the firm are taking on such big name defendants as video game giant Nintendo, computer pioneer Apple, and St. Jude Medical, one of the world’s leading providers of medical equipment.

To handle the growth of the intellectual property work, the firm has renovated and expanded its Palo Alto offices, which are located at 2200 Geng Road, Suite 200, Palo Alto, California, 94303. The firm is unveiling the newly renovated space during a reception later this month with guests from the local media, technology industry and legal community.

The Palo Alto office is a main hub of the firm’s Intellectual Property Litigation Group, which represents clients in disputes involving patent infringement, trademark and copyright violations, unlawful use of trade secrets and other areas of intellectual property law.

With offices in Los Angeles, Palo Alto, Houston and New York, The Lanier Law Firm is committed to addressing client concerns with effective and innovative solutions in courtrooms across the country. The firm is composed of outstanding trial attorneys with decades of experience handling cases involving pharmaceutical liability, asbestos exposure, intellectual property, business litigation, product liability, toxic exposure and maritime law.
