Quick Reaction Force
In military science, a Quick Reaction Force (QRF) is a military unit capable of rapidly responding to developing situations, typically to integrate as a team with allies in need of immediate assistance. They are skilled, prepared, and equipped to respond to any type of emergency. Army units postured as quick reaction forces have a main mission of security and information gathering.
We have developed a specialized QRF for urgent litigation needs and other precipitous legal matters. Your QRF is a modern litigation team that responds directly to your company’s leadership’s goals quickly and decisively.
In such situations, you need QRF to effectively channel all legal force immediately to your problem. Frankly, other law firms are not flexible and organized so that they can quickly pivot the focus of their ranks to a single legal emergency. Keep in mind that such highly focused responsive legal teams are expensive – but well worth it, if need arises.
Preliminary Injunctions and Temporary Restraining Orders (“TROs”) are the fastest way to ask a Court for immediate relief to prevent your opponent from taking further damaging action against you or your company. Our lawyer teams are constructed in a special way that allows us to turn all of our focus to obtaining immediate relief for you.
Companies and Partnerships explode and implode as social, economic, and relationships are pressurized from micro and macro factors. We help you contain the situation, and provide strategies to maximize damage control. Often we file for Temporary Restraining order and Preliminary Injunctions to prevent former partners or shareholders from stealing your valuable employees, clients, confidential information, and trade secrets. In these situations you need a legal team that can re-direct its entire focus to your urgent problem. We are that team.
Acquiring companies that pursue a hostile takeover will use any number of tactics to gain ownership of their target. These include making a tender offer directly to shareholders or engaging in a proxy fight to replace the target company’s management. To defend itself against the acquirer, a target company can also deploy a variety of strategies. Some of the more colorfully named tactics are the Pac-Man defense, the crown-jewel defense, or the golden parachute.
“Customer raids” or “employee raids” – the wrongful solicitation of your customers and employees – can be disastrous for your company. Your most valuable assets are your hard-won customers and the human capital invested in your employees. In such cases, you may need immediate legal help to seek relief before your company is irreparably harmed. Because of the genuine possibility of irreparable harm to you and your company, Judges will carefully consider entering a Temporary Restraining Order and Preliminary Injunction when either a prior employee has breached an employment agreement with a specific non-solicitation provision, or a competitor is engaged in wrongful competition, sometimes called unfair competition. Certain jurisdictions have limited such relief. Our team will evaluate with you whether QRF is a solution in your case where another is wrongfully soliciting your customers or employees.
QRF will organize quickly to take action to protect your trademark and copyrights across all borders. Our nation-wide capabilities and local knowledge enable us to work collaboratively to provide seamless, fast, high-quality strategies to immediately seek to protect your rights.
A trademark protects a word, phrase, symbol or device — the mark — used in commerce to identify and distinguish one product from another. Trademarks help businesses and the public by making the differences between products clear.
Copyrights protect original artistic works. That includes things like photos, books, movies, songs, paintings, software code, architecture and even the article you are reading right now. Copyrights give their owner the exclusive right to reproduce and profit off the underlying work. The underlying principle is simple: If you create something original, you get to choose what to do with it. Other parties may be granted permission to use those works through licensing arrangements or may purchase the works from the copyright holder.
Patents protect novel inventions or discoveries like pharmaceutical drugs, complex machinery or advanced software. By prohibiting others from using or importing the invention, a patent essentially grants its owner a monopoly on the innovation, but only for a limited time — generally 20 years. After that, anyone can use it free.
Urgent legal action is needed against anyone embezzling from your company. If occasion arises, QRF will immediately focus its efforts on taking immediate steps which could mean filing for a Temporary Restraining Order and a Preliminary Injunction or helping you seek to vindicate your civil and criminal rights by putting you in contact with the authorities. Our capabilities are lightning-fast. Our vast knowledge enables us to work collaboratively to help you obtain all available legal remedies.
The crime of embezzlement occurs when a person who was entrusted to monitor or manage someone else’s property or money steals the property or money for his or her own personal gain. Embezzlement is a type of property theft when the theft is carried out in violation of the alleged offender’s position of trust with regard to the stolen property or money. This expectation of trust combined with the alleged offender’s legal right to possess or access the property or money in question, is what sets embezzlement apart from other theft crimes, like larceny. In order for a person to be found guilty of embezzlement, that person must have had legal access to the other person’s property or money, but not legal ownership of it.
Fighting back again defamation and invasion of privacy is something that we take very seriously. You are not powerless. Defamation and invasion of privacy laws have very specific requirements and often require swift, extensive fact-based investigations. Our office has vast experience handling these types of cases.
