An Interdisciplinary Approach
& Contract Interpretation
Our linguists and lawyers have pioneered the application of corpus linguistics to the interpretation of legal texts, such as statutes, constitutions, and contracts, to better answer questions of ambiguity and vagueness. Our research has been cited by federal and state courts around the country, including the
United States Supreme Court.
Applying survey and linguistic methods we can investigate a host of trademark dispute issues, such as genericness, dilution, and secondary meaning.
Corpus linguistics can apply a more rigorous, objective, and transparent analysis of the terms in patent claims.
