Trademark and brand protection is a critical cornerstone of our intellectual property system. We litigate many high-stakes trademark disputes involving both infringement and dilution claims, as well as federal and state unfair competition law. We also counsel clients on securing and protecting their trade and service marks so that their brand maximizes its value. All in all, we recognize how both to preserve brand value and how to avoid liability for infringement.
Some notable examples include:
- Representing a local clothing company in a lawsuit with Madonna, her companies, and Macy’s over the “Material Girl” trademark.
- Representing a U.S. Senate candidate in a false endorsement and unfair competition claim by the Eagles’ Don Henley.
- Representing Bettie Page Clothing in trade dress and trademark claims involving vintage fashion designs.
- Representing a celebrity designer in a trademark interference action against a rival brand.
- Representing one of the largest club membership retailers in the nation in bet-the-company litigation involving federal Lanham Act trade dress and misappropriation claims.
- Representing famous celebrity Yogini Shiva Rea in trademark disputes regarding instructional yoga videos and yoga methods.
- Representing famed illustrator Shag, protecting his works from exploitation not only under the copyright laws but also by way of creative application of the trademark laws.
