I have evidence from the company's Webinar to show that my confidential information (exposed during commercialisation talk) was used in a company's product. I believe it is enough evidence. If I want to start court proceedings, can my lawyer refuse to do so?

Yes absolutely they can refuse to take a case on.

Litigation is costly. Might need to stump up a latge amount of money up front. Not much change out of $500K for an involved IP case involving expert witnesses and patents.
