Intellectual Property Litigation & Enforcement

Our attorneys protect our clients’ intellectual property assets, such as patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets, in federal and state courts, as well as before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the International Trade Commission and the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.

The firm has obtained favorable decisions to protect proprietary rights of our clients at all stages of litigation. We are also successful in negotiating favorable settlements for clients without resorting to litigation in instances when this was in our clients’ best interests.

Domain Disputes & Top-Level Domain Expansion

Protecting the valuable trademarks and trade names of our clients also entails implementing an effective domain name registration strategy. This often includes prosecuting domain name infringement claims in federal court under the federal Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act and under the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) arbitration guidelines and its Uniform Domain-Name Dispute Resolution Policy. Our attorneys have achieved extraordinary success in these proceedings, enabling our clients to efficiently and successfully resolve domain name matters and advance the best domain name registration strategy.

We have established a domain name expansion team led by a firm partner who is a member of the Internet Governance and Contractual Relationships Subcommittee of the International Trademark Association’s (INTA) Internet Committee and a partner who is the chair of the Domain Disputes Subcommittee of INTA’s Internet Committee. With the new Internet top-level domain names recently opened by ICANN, (e.g., “.law,” “.news,” “.your brand”), our domain name expansion team is prepared to assist clients in obtaining top-level domain registries of their own and in contesting the problematic applications of others.
