Seyfarth Shaw’s multi-office Trademark Litigation team helps our clients protect and maintain their hard-earned unique positions in the marketplace through its business-oriented approach to trademark, false advertising and unfair competition litigation. Many of the members of the team both prosecute trademark applications and litigate trademark disputes, thereby bringing to bear substantial experience ranging from clearance to licensing to protection. We find that this cross-disciplinary approach provides our clients with robust advice regarding when and how to address potential infringement as well as the issues that arise when such disputes are litigated. We have litigated trademark issues for clients ranging from multi-national corporations to cutting edge start-ups.
