When a major news organization was accused of copyright infringement, it relied on Finnegan to evaluate the claims and defend against the spurious suit in the Eastern District of Michigan. Finnegan's mediation brief established that our client did not infringe, and a favorable settlement followed.

Seoul Semiconductor received favorable rulings on several important motions in its U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) case led by Finnegan against Nichia Corporation, paving the way to a valuable cross-licensing deal as part of a settlement ending years of litigation in courts across the globe.  Finnegan represented SSC in cases from the Eastern District of Texas to the Central District of California, as well as at the Federal Circuit.  Shares in SSC rose fifteen percent on the Korea Exchange following the announcement.

Nearly a year after accusing firm client FedEx of patent infringement in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Big Baboon, Inc. of Sunnyvale, California, agreed to dismiss its claims against FedEx.  The stipulated dismissal came after Finnegan attorneys persuaded Big Baboon that its accusations were baseless. 

Finnegan’s work for Eastman Chemical covers a wide variety of technologies, including Eastman’s valuable specialty polyester resin portfolio. Our work has involved drafting and prosecuting applications for commercially important technologies; specialty prosecution proceedings, such as reexaminations and reissues; the preparation of opinions; prelitigation investigations; and issues involving licensing.

Petroleum Equipment Manufacturing Company (PEMCO) had unsuccessfully sought to have oil drilling and oil well equipment certified by Finnegan client American Petroleum Institute (API). Despite the fact that it was not certifi ed, PEMCO placed a counterfeit of the API certifi cation mark on its products. API objected and PEMCO agreed to cease using the counterfeit API certification mark. API later discovered that PEMCO was continuing to use the counterfeit API certification mark and retained Finnegan to sue PEMCO for trademark infringement, counterfeiting, and breach of contract. PEMCO agreed to a permanent injunction against further use of the API marks and payment of API’s costs. This result successfully stopped a counterfeiting operation that falsely passed off uncertified products as meeting API’s safety standards.

The PTO initiated an interference between a patent application of Finnegan client Genetics Institute and a patent of Stryker Corporation. The PTO awarded judgment to Genetics Institute, thus resolving priority of invention to the disputed subject matter. The interference related to bone morphogenic proteins, which affect bone growth.

Starbucks is a household name with thousands of retail locations across the globe and a brand that extends well beyond coffee. Finnegan successfully opposed an application for the mark LESSBUCKS COFFEE for coffee, tea, and coffee- and tea-based beverages and related retail locations. We obtained a ruling that the STARBUCKS trademarks is a famous mark entitled to a broad scope of protection, and that the LESSBUCKS mark was likely to cause confusion.

On behalf of Crucible Materials, we filed an ITC patent infringement case involving industrial neodymium-iron-boron magnets and prevailed against all eight respondents. We obtained a combination of consent orders, cease and desist orders, limited exclusion orders, and general exclusion orders against Chinese competitors. The general exclusion order prohibits all of Crucible’s foreign competitors from importing infringing magnets, regardless of whether they were parties to the ITC case. We later brought an enforcement action that resulted in civil penalties of $1.5 million against several respondents. The civil penalty was affirmed on appeal.

We represented a major travel-related company in securing worldwide patent protection on a diverse portfolio of software and business-method–related inventions. We advised and defended the client on various allegations of patent infringement and third-party claims for indemnification against infringement allegations.
