Complex Intellectual Property Dispute

Creativity is a differentiator and the driving force behind some of the most iconic products in the marketplace. We represented the author of a Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Publisher’s Weekly best-selling book and creator of accompanying merchandise in an intellectual property dispute. Our client became aware of a company marketing a competing product utilizing terms and phrases associated with our client’s protected works. The competing company was leveraging unique terminology to direct online traffic to their website at the expense of our client. We protected our client’s interests in a suit that had been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio. Ultimately, the dispute was resolved in mediation. We worked with our client and were successful in not only protecting their intellectual property but also safeguarding their ongoing competitive advantage in the marketplace.
