Intellectual Property

We represent clients in all aspects of trademark and copyright litigation, from complex multi-jurisdiction matters to smaller disputes in North Carolina courts and federal courts nationwide. We enforce our clients’ rights against infringers and defend claims against them for infringement. Our expertise includes the regular representation of clients in trademark opposition and cancellation proceedings before the United States Trial and Appeal Board.

Our clients include manufacturers, distributors, entertainers, technology companies, publishers, service providers, and small business owners. For each of them, we assist in the protection of proprietary rights in their intellectual property, including the protection of valuable trade secrets and rights of publicity.   We are also actively involved with our clients in the management of their commercial reputations, assisting them with false advertising, commercial disparagement, and defamation claims.
