Knobbe/Martens: Intellectual Property Law

Trademark and Unfair Competition Litigation

Given the breadth of our experience and range of our success, you might say trademark litigation is our trademark. We’re consistently recognized in all aspects of federal and state trademark litigation from initial complaint through appeal, including claims of counterfeiting, trademark infringement, trade dress infringement, false advertising, unfair competition, rights of publicity, domain name disputes, and other related state law claims.

We’ve successfully represented both plaintiffs and defendants in cases nationwide before US District Courts, as well as before the USPTO Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) and Federal Circuit. We also advise clients on proceedings involving false and misleading advertising claims before the Better Business Bureau National Advertising Division (NAD) and the FTC. Where appropriate, we position cases for settlement and guide our clients through successful mediation.

And we apply our expertise across a wide range of industries, including consumer products such as sports and clothing, dolls and toys, food and beverages; financial and insurance services; and high-tech industries including semiconductor chips, medical devices, automobiles, software and hardware, cleantech and more.
