Intellectual Property Litigation
Our intellectual property litigators conduct litigation to enforce, defend and/or challenge trademarks, copyrights, false advertising, licensing, trade secrets and all forms of intellectual property rights. We develop and complement sound and effective strategies in connection with intellectual property disputes.
Recently, we successfully represented a closing manufacturer’s trademark infringement claim and in the process, further solidified our client’s trademark rights. We successfully represented a school in an action to protect its trademark, thereby requiring its competitor to cease using certain teaching material. We successfully negotiated an agreement allowing our client to register a trademark in the face of a challenge by a holder of a similar mark.
