Skiermont Derby LLP

Skiermont Derby is a litigation boutique with trial lawyers in Dallas and Los Angeles. The firm has extensive experience litigating all types of IP claims, including patent, trademark and copyright infringement, trade secret misappropriation, and rights of publicity and privacy—often in combination with related claims for violations of antitrust and unfair competition laws. Skiermont Derby has achieved success in patent infringement jury trials in diverse venues such as Chicago and East Texas, including verdicts for willful patent infringement. The firm’s courtroom successes in high-stakes litigation have earned it numerous award and accolades based on peer and client feedback, and IP Law360 describes Skiermont Derby as a firm “capable of competing with – and beating – the best big firms at the highest level.” Beyond our role as trial lawyers, we understand clients need trusted advisers who have a deep understanding of their objectives. Sometimes a ‘win’ for a client means finding a creative way to avoid a dispute altogether, while other times it means turning a dispute into a new business opportunity, or simply finding a way to control legal costs. But for some intellectual property disputes, the only way to win is to succeed in the courtroom—and Skiermont Derby was formed more than a decade ago to be on the shortlist of firms that clients call when they need experienced IP trial lawyers.
