Carey Rodriguez Attorneys

Results Oriented, Goal Driven

Trademark Counseling and Litigation

Carey Rodriguez’s intellectual property practitioners understand the value of trademarks and have counseled clients in all phases of the trademark process - from selection to registration to maintenance to enforcement. Our experience is varied, from negotiation of standard and non-standard trademark licenses and transactions; to representation in trademark and domain name disputes, to federal court trademark litigation under the Lanham Act as well as proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.

Our trademark portfolio management experience is varied and spans multiple countries, leveraging our relationships with foreign trademark practicioners. We have also represented clients in opposition and cancellation proceedings before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, obtaining favorable decisions and settlements while managing the process to minimize expenses where possible.

Finally, we are well versed in ICANN's Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy. Our knowledge of UDRP procedures has allowed us to quickly and efficiently obtain orders transferring the hijacked or infringing domain names to our clients.

Our representative engagements include:

  • Successful 6-week trial and resulting appeal of a major trademark infringement, misappropriation of trade secrets, and computer hacking lawsuit on behalf of one of the world's leading brand owners
  • Successful trial of a trademark infringement action in the pharmaceutical industry resulting in multi-million dollar judgment and attorneys' fees award
