When it comes to settlements, SHERMAN IP attorneys are practiced in trying to reach negotiated resolutions. SHERMAN IP holds a philosophy that any negotiated resolution where you can control the business aspects is better than most resolutions that are determined by an independent Judge, Jury or other arbiter that may not have your best interests in mind. These negotiated resolutions are quick and efficient agreements that are put in place once a determination of wrongdoing or other controversy has been confirmed and is understood. A negotiated resolution to your controversy can prevent extended and costly courtroom proceedings and protracted litigation. It is sometimes easier to affect a negotiated resolution when one of the parties suspects or knows that there is evidence that will favorably or unfavorably skew the outcome. These resolutions can also reduce the cost and profit loss for both our clients and the opposing party.
