Hanszen Laporte Successfully Defends Business and Intellectual Property Rights

July 31, 2020

Matthew Hansel and Anthony Laporte successfully defended a Hanszen Laporte client’s business and intellectual property rights this week, obtaining an order from the Western District of Texas denying plaintiff’s attempt to shut-down the client’s operations with an onerous injunction. The client, an advanced oil and gas services company, was sued for alleged patent infringement and the injunctive relief sought by the plaintiff would have effectively prevented Hanszen Laporte’s client from conducting any business for, at minimum, 8 months to 1 year. At Hanszen Laporte we recognize these are trying times for everyone, especially in the highly competitive and hard-hit oil and gas services industry, and that even a slight interruption in business can sometimes be the difference between success and going under. Hanszen Laporte is proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with its clients to make sure their hard-earned success is protected from litigious competitors.
