Our lawyers have extensive experience litigating and arbitrating on behalf of intellectual property owners in complex, high-stakes disputes. For example, we have done software anti-piracy work for Microsoft, trademark infringement litigation for Carnival, and defended priceline.com’s “Name your own price” slogan against a cyber squatter.
We also have significant experience in cross-border intellectual property litigation. As one example, we have litigated to successful conclusion the claims of the owners of a Mexican children’s theme park against a U.S.-based company that was infringing their copyrights and trademarks. We have the capacity to litigate virtually any intellectual property matter from simple cases to complex disputes with large exposures.
