The Intellectual Property Litigation lawyers at Vaughan Baio & Partners zealously protect their clients’ trademarks, brands, service marks, trade secrets, trade names and other intellectual property against theft, trade dress and brand name infringement, dilution, disparagement and other unfair competitive tactics. We have earned a successful track record in large and small lawsuits defending companies wrongfully accused of trademark infringement and prosecuting infringements when our clients’ brands and marks have been misused.
Our lawyers work closely with clients to develop and implement strategies that best protect their trade names, brands, marks and strategic and business interests. We send cease and desist letters and file temporary restraining orders on their behalf to halt infringement and signal their readiness to file lawsuits. We help them resolve disputes and recover losses through negotiated settlements, licensing agreements, alternative dispute resolution and litigation in federal and state courts, appellate courts and before administrative bodies like the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.
In addition, we aggressively prosecute Lanham Act claims on behalf of victims of unfair competition and misleading advertising, including litigating cases to verdict. In one such matter, we helped a bottled water company stop a competitor from claiming that it was selling natural spring water, which had allowed it to unfairly gain market share through false advertising.
We also counsel clients on ways to prevent lawsuits before they happen. We advise them on best practices for protecting trade secrets, monitoring trademark portfolios and tracking competitors to identify and swiftly end deceptive tactics and unfair competition.
Our lawyers have broad knowledge across a wide range of sectors. This depth allows us to stay abreast of the industry developments, marketplace trends and competitor moves that matter to our clients.
Clients appreciate our understanding of their business objectives, competitive challenges and market pressures. They know they can count on us to advise them on the optimal course of action when faced with trademark issues, and to work with them to quickly and efficiently address infringement without significant disruption to their commercial activities.
