Sheehan Phinney’s Intellectual Property Litigation Group understands that protecting a client’s brand and the reputation and image of its products or services is critical to our clients’ success in today’s competitive marketplace.  We will always attempt to resolve acts of infringement proactively, but when a negotiated resolution is not possible, we vigorously represent our clients’ intellectual property interests in trials in the federal and state systems, or in the arbitral forum.  Trademark or false advertising disputes often require immediate action, and our team is well-experienced in pursuing the injunctive relief and temporary restraining orders necessary to protect our clients’ rights.  Our attorneys have a comprehensive understanding of the trademark law, including the Lanham Act; Federal Trade Commission Act; Food, Drug & Cosmetics Act; and state unfair competition and consumer protection statutes.  We also routinely represent clients in trademark opposition and cancellation proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.  Our trademark clients cross a wide range of industries, from software and technology companies, to professional sports franchises; to energy providers.
