Trademark Litigation

TLG attorneys have decades of experience in intellectual property litigation, including trademark, trade dress, patent, copyright, trade secret, false advertising, right of publicity, domain name, and unfair competition. The head of the firm’s intellectual property practice group holds a peer-review rating (AV) by Martindale-Hubbell and was named to the “Best Lawyers in the Bay Area” list published by Bay Area Lawyer Magazine in the area of intellectual property.

In addition to their extensive practice before the federal and state courts within California, TLG attorneys have experience in important intellectual property jurisdictions elsewhere in the country, such as the Southern District of New York, and in USPTO patent re-examination/interference and trademark cancellation/opposition administrative proceedings.

In many intellectual property cases, liability insurance is available, and the identification of potential coverage and implementation of an insurance strategy is critical to the legal and economic consequences of the litigation. TLG attorneys have substantial experience dealing with the complex insurance issues which arise in intellectual property cases and working with clients’ insurers to reimburse expenses and successfully resolve the matter.

While most of our intellectual property litigation arises from the major technology industries, we also support many non-technology industries with special business and intellectual property issues. For example, TLG represents wineries involved in trademark label litigation and related administrative matters. A familiarity with this unique industry gained from years of experience has proven invaluable in successfully representing wineries and their owners.
