Trademark and Copyright Litigation

Cantor Colburn litigators have a proven record of protecting and defending our clients’ trademarks and copyrights. We seek a single result in each engagement:  to swiftly and effectively, protect and enforce our clients’ IP rights.

We prosecute and defend a range of claims for our clients, which include leading multinational companies and individual entrepreneurs. We are especially skilled at resolving complex claims and disputes before they escalate to trials. Experienced prosecutors and defenders, we have achieved exceptional results when a trial is unavoidable, successfully representing our clients’ interests in state and federal courts, as well as before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) and at the International Trade Commission (ITC), and in arbitration and mediation proceedings.

Our practice includes:

Trademark and Trade Dress Litigation
While we help clients implement effective enforcement policies to protect their brands, there are times when trademark and trade dress infringement issues cannot be resolved by proactive measures or negotiation. On such occasions, we ably represent both plaintiffs and defendants in trademark and trade dress infringement cases.

Unfair Competition and False Advertising Litigation
We skillfully represent clients with unfair competition and false advertising claims against competitors or other third parties. Should unfair competition or false advertising claims be lodged against a client, our litigation team has the experience and track record to provide vigorous defense representation.

Domain Name Litigation
Cantor Colburn has a distinguished record in representing clients in domain name disputes. Our team is experienced in seeking domain name protection for clients under Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy proceedings.

Copyright Litigation
We represent clients in a range of copyright infringement matters. When an infringer has misappropriated copyrighted content, we pursue in and out of court relief on behalf of our clients. We also ably defend clients against claims of copyright infringement.

Right of Publicity Litigation
When a client’s rights of publicity are infringed, we act to resolve the issue as effectively and expeditiously as possible. Should a third party claim be made against a client, we vigorously defend them both in and out of court.
