Intellectual Property


Intellectual property rights may be a company’s most valuable asset. Protecting those rights requires a comprehensive understanding of the law together with a strategic focus. We have tried and won one of the largest infringement cases in the United States.  Our team with Jennifer Keller as lead counsel for MGA, won the retrial of Mattel v. MGA (aka “Barbie v. Bratz”), a billion-dollar “bet the company” copyright infringement and trade secret misappropriation case.

REPRESENTATIVE MATTERS
