Copyright & Trademark Litigation

With over 150 years of combined experience handling copyright and trademark infringement cases in federal courts, our cost-conscious attorneys always work with the client’s desired outcome in mind. We obtain TRO’s, money judgments and permanent injunctions to stop infringers of trademarks and copyrights in myriad industries, including garments, graphic design, household furnishings and consumer goods, fashion accessories, works of fine art, television content, film content, movie and animation characters, images and logos, videogame content and characters, musical compositions, and dramatic works. Using the same expertise, our attorneys employ innovative tactics such as pre-emptive suits for non-infringement to successfully defend clients against unwarranted accusations of infringement. When defending against infringement claims, we are adept at obtaining contribution or indemnity from other parties and insurers and quickly resolving cases when warranted by our assessment of exposure. We also litigate domestic and cross-border IP licensing disputes.
