Materials Supplier v. Brewing Company (In receivership)
I successfully represented our client, a beer brewing company, in enforcing its right of first refusal with respect to trademark rights in certain local beer brands. A receiver who took control of these trademarks from a defunct brewery sought to sell both the brewery and the trademarks to another entity, in violation of our client's rights. After objecting to the sale, I argued our client's position at a hearing in state court in Northern Ohio. The hearing involved the receiver, the bank, a competing buyer, and other creditors. After the argument, the client and I successfully negotiated a resolution whereby our client obtained the desired beer brands at a favorable price.
