Trial Lawyers by Preference and Design

The lawyers of Hosie Rice LLP try and win difficult cases. In the past two decades, we have recovered billions of dollars in intellectual property, antitrust, energy, and business tort cases. We run a plaintiff oriented docket, with an emphasis on intellectual property and complex commercial litigation.

We are trial lawyers by preference and design. We like to try cases. We represent inventors, emerging technology companies, and investors. We understand technology, and we understand how to make technology clear to judge and jury alike.

Our practice is nationwide. We have one of the most active intellectual property and complex commercial litigation plaintiff dockets of any firm in the country.
