Copyright/Trademark Litigation

Copyright/Trademark Litigation

Our team is specially equipped to enforce your intellectual property rights, and protect or recover the associated value. In addition, we handle prosecution and defense in non-competition, non-solicitation, and confidentiality litigation.

Trademark infringement, trademark dilution, and false advertising are all prohibited by the Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C. 1051, et seq.  WilliamsMcCarthy can help you protect your trademarks by registering them with the U.S.P.T.O. and by sending cease and desist letters to those who infringe upon your trademarks. Our team of experienced litigators can also sue those who violate your rights, or where necessary, defend you from trademark litigation brought against you.

Many clients are surprised to know that insurance is often available to pay for the defense or judgment entered in a trademark lawsuit. We can help identify insurance policies that may apply, put the carriers on notice by tendering the suit to them for coverage, and (if necessary) litigate insurance coverage matters. In fact, many insurance companies hire members of our Intellectual Property practice group to defend their insureds in trademark suits, in which cases the defense costs are paid by the insurers, not the clients.

For more information about trademarks please contact one of the members of our Intellectual Property practice group or see the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s website (
