Whether you are looking to file an intellectual property infringement case or you had such a lawsuit filed against you, you may be looking into acquiring legal representation.

What questions should I prepare to ask an IP lawyer at my initial consultation?

Before you meet with an intellectual property lawyer, we encourage you to reflect on what you want to get out of this meeting. Your goal likely is to retain legal representation from someone with your best interest at heart and the ability to make your case a success. You may get your answer in the end if you prepare the right questions beforehand. Without further ado, relevant questions you may prepare to ask your IP lawyer at your initial consultation are as follows:

  • How many years have you been practicing intellectual property law?
  • How many successful intellectual property cases have you had, similar to mine?
  • Do you have an educated guess on whether I should pursue legal action in the first place?
  • What is your estimated success rate for the legal action you have proposed for me to pursue?
  • How long will your proposed legal action take me from start to finish, and how much will it cost me?
  • What documents do I need to prepare for our next meeting together and overall to kickstart my legal action?

Why should I take advantage of my initial consultation?

You may have never been involved in legal proceedings before, thereby making the legal realm a foreign concept to you. So, your initial consultation with an IP lawyer may help you fully understand your legal rights, your legal obligations, and your possible legal avenues, not to mention your potential legal issues.

This is why we understand if you meet with other law firms and lawyers before and after your initial consultation with us. After all, this is a serious decision in which you must explore all your options thoroughly.
