Practice

contingency

The practice of Elliott & Polasek, PLLC, located in Houston, Texas, is concentrated in the area of intellectual property law, with an emphasis on litigation and licensing, specifically patent infringement, trademark infringement, copyright infringement and trade secret lawsuits on a reasonable hourly basis, contingency fee or result based fee. We are experienced in mediation, rendering infringement and validity opinions, licensing and technology transfer, and client counseling.

In addition to representing both plaintiffs and defendants on an hourly basis, a portion of our practice also includes enforcing patents on a contingency basis. The firm, Elliott & Polasek, PLLC, is flexible in negotiating contingent-fee and alternative billing arrangements.  The fee can also be based upon a mixed hourly/partial contingent fee arrangement. Our standard contingency fee agreement provides that the client will owe no attorneys’ fees unless a recovery is obtained.  Typically, the firm expects the client to be responsible for a portion (to be agreed on) of court costs and litigation expenses as they are incurred.  We have years of experience in litigating intellectual property lawsuits, yet for our  hourly clients, we maintain reasonable hourly rates.
