Litigation - Trademark Litigation
Full representation for your mark.
Our counseling services often begin at a trademark’s inception, with proactive advice during the selection and prosecution process. But when problems arise and valuable trademark rights are at stake, clients like Caterpillar, Disney, and Yahoo! rely on Finnegan’s experience to solve them. Both Managing Intellectual Property and The Legal 500 U.S. have recognized Finnegan’s trademark litigation experience, naming Finnegan the #1 or #2 Tier U.S. Law Firm for Trademark Contentious Work, 2005-2012 (Managing Intellectual Property) and the #1 IP Law Firm for Trademark Litigation, 2007-2012 (The Legal 500 U.S.).
Finnegan has handled cases that span numerous industries and implicate all types of trademark rights, including trademarks, service marks, trade dress, product configurations, trade names, and even telephone numbers. Representing both plaintiffs and defendants, our lawyers have decades of experience litigating both large and small trademark cases before courts throughout the country. We routinely appear before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and its Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB), the U.S. International Trade Commission, and other tribunals. Our trademark team includes a former administrative law judge at the TTAB.
We’ve developed an international reputation in the area of domain names and other Internet-related trademark issues. We have written summaries of every Internet-related trademark decision from U.S. courts. Our lawyers handle hundreds of domain name resolutions each year and have filed or defended approximately 450 complaints under the Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers.
