Prosecuted multi-million dollar trademark action and defended counterclaim
We represented the owner of a $400 million business enterprise in prosecuting a trademark action. We contended that the defendant, who previously had claimed to be in a partnership with our client before the court dismissed his theory, was infringing upon our client’s trademarks. We proved that the defendant had no evidence to support his claims that license fee payments he had made were “capital contributions” to our client and their alleged partnership. A federal judge ruled that the defendant had infringed upon our client’s trademark and granted summary judgment to our client. He also entered a permanent injunction to prevent the defendant from using our client’s trademarks.
