Laura Caldera focuses her representation of clients in three areas: professional liability litigation, business disputes, and intellectual property litigation. Architects, engineers, accountants, and other professionals hire Laura to defend them against allegations of professional malpractice and represent them before professional boards. Intellectual property clients engage her to represent them for trademark, copyright, trade secret, and patent disputes.
Her approach is consistent regardless of the area of the law: gain a full understanding of the issues, but more importantly, the client’s needs. Once understood, she prepares a vigorous defense or representation that draws on her many years of successful trial experience.
