Trademark Litigation

We represent our clients in trademark infringement and dilution cases and unfair competition and false advertising cases in courts across the country, as well as in opposition and cancellation proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board of the Patent and Trademark Office. We prosecute and defend infringement and dilution claims and litigate disputes over product configuration, trade dress, fair use, nominative fair use, indications of geographic origin, initial interest confusion, linking and framing, certification and collective marks, the intersection of trademark rights and the First Amendment, and the online use of competitive trademarks. We work with clients to develop cost-sensitive and effective strategies to combat online and domain name infringement in courts and international administrative tribunals, including UDRP proceedings. Our experience spans every medium of promotion and distribution, and virtually all industries. We work with many of the leading experts if economic analysis and consumer surveys are needed.

We are equally proud of our record of resolving disputes without the time and expense of litigation. We help our clients develop trademark enforcement strategies to match the business challenges they face. We can take the lead in trademark enforcement or we can support our clients as they protect their rights themselves; in either case, we work with our clients to determine what suits their needs and preferences and tailor our approach accordingly.
