Houston, TX (PRWEB) May 16, 2014
Williams Kherkher (http://www.williamskherkher.com), a national trial law powerhouse, and Prebeg, Faucett and Abbott (http://www.pfalawfirm.com), an emerging leader in intellectual property and commercial litigation, announced today that they have entered into a strategic alliance to provide flexible expanded commercial litigation services to their U.S. and foreign clients.
Prebeg, Faucett and Abbott (PFA) is an emerging intellectual property and commercial litigation law firm, delivering premier legal services to international and domestic corporations. Williams Kherkher has been actively involved in commercial litigation for years, with more than 600 clients in this docket alone. Overall, Williams Kherkher has gotten more than $17 billion for its clients.
John Eddie Williams, Managing Partner for Williams Kherkher, said: "We are pleased to announce our alliance with PFA, a rapidly emerging intellectual property and commercial litigation law firm that has proven experience domestically and internationally in providing clients with insightful legal representation and commercial acumen. The strategic alliance with PFA is a key component of our growth strategy. PFA’s knowledge of intellectual property is second to none."
Matthew Prebeg, a Managing Member at PFA, said: "We are delighted to join forces with Williams Kherkher and to be able to offer our clients access to a world class global legal platform. We know that our alliance will be a long and fruitful one and look forward to working closely with John Eddie and his team to provide preeminent legal services".
The firms have unique litigation models, with both firms being plaintiff firms that work on a contingency model. Armi Easterby, Commercial Litigation Leader for Williams Kherkher, sums it up well:
“Unless you are a Fortune 500 company, the prospect of paying attorneys’ fees on an hourly basis creates significant difficulties in undertaking litigation even if it is critical to your business. We understand risk sharing in commercial settings. Our contingent-fee model better aligns our interests with that of our clients, eliminating incentives to needlessly increase litigation costs while aggressively pursuing the best avenues for a positive outcome. With PFA, their model is contingency fee like us, so our joint interests are aligned, and we are aligned with the interests our clients.”
The contingency fee model resonates with small and medium sized businesses, and with the CFOs and General Counsel at larger companies. The model is a cost effective way to produce results and revenue for businesses that cannot or do not wish to invest resources in paying hourly fees for litigation expertise and allows us to economically litigate cases for businesses in such areas as:
- Intellectual property disputes
- Misappropriation of trade secrets
- Copyright disputes
- Unfair competition
- Oil & Gas disputes
- Breach of contract
- Insurance coverage disputes
- Financial or securities fraud
- Tortious interference with business relations
Prebeg, Faucett & Abbott (PFA) specializes in intellectual property and commercial legal matters involving technical or scientific subject matter, including patent marketing, licensing, and litigation, protecting trade secrets and business know-how, product liability, and other legal matters requiring technical knowledge. Most of its attorneys have technical degrees in either engineering or computer science, and several have worked for or with manufacturing entities in Japan and other Asian countries, Europe, Canada, and throughout the United States. Two of PFA’s lawyers are licensed to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and all are patent litigators. PFA has a national client base, and has European and numerous Asian clients. PFA has an extensive base of industry experts that can be immediately consulted for contacted to answer essential technical questions.
