OVERVIEW

Delivering smart solutions to complex issues

Intellectual property only has value if you can protect it. The successful defense of a company’s patent, trademark, and copyright can make all the difference in the viability of an idea — and of a business.

Your intellectual property and patents require a robust defense and a legal team with technical skills and legal acumen. Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig’s intellectual property litigation team has experience handling all forms of intellectual property and patent disputes before federal courts, the Patent Trial and Appeals Board (PTAB), and the Trademark Trial and Appeals Board (TTAB).

Our experience with intellectual property disputes

Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig’s intellectual property litigation team focuses on protecting clients’ brands, ideas, and innovations

Our patent disputes team has experience filing and winning preliminary injunctions to stop infringing activity. We have litigated and resolved patent disputes on behalf of plaintiffs and defendants in federal courts and before the PTAB.

Our copyright litigation team has litigated copyright infringement matters on behalf of film studios, independent artists, journalists, and screenwriters. We help clients stop online infringement with takedown notices and Section 512 subpoenas.

Our trademark infringement attorneys have litigated infringement cases, false advertising matters, and deceptive trade practices for a variety of clients, from technology companies to professional sports organizations, in federal courts and before the Trademark Trial and Appeals Board (TTAB).

We also handle disputes under the ICANN Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP). Our law firm has represented domain name investors, parking companies, registrars, and online marketing firms and have significant experience with both trademark owners and domain name registrants in UDRP procedures. Our domain name dispute team also provides clearance letters, risk assessment, and due diligence services.
