Fernald Law Group LLP’s Intellectual Property practice focuses on defending our clients’ intellectual property assets as well as defending against intellectual property claims. Firm attorneys have successfully prosecuted and defended trademark and patent lawsuits in federal courts around the country. We are well versed in the intricacies of the Lanham Act and Federal patent law, and have substantial industry specific experience, including automotive, retail and technology.
In addition to traditional intellectual property policing tasks, including cease and desist letters and the like, Fernald Law Group attorneys have tried patent cases to verdict, have obtained emergency injunctive relief in intellectual property disputes, and have negotiated favorable intellectual property litigation settlements.
Fernald Law Group attorneys recently obtained a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction in a copyright work-for-hire case in the United States District Court for the Central District of California.
The Firm was also successful in defending a multi-million dollar false advertising and unfair competition case also in the Central District.
Fernald Law Group attorneys have also litigated patent infringement cases in Federal courts in California and Nevada.
In addition to trademark, copyright and patent matters, Fernald Law Group attorneys have litigated trade secret cases on behalf of national clients, and have defended former employees against trade secret allegations by their employers. Fernald Law Group recently obtained a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction on behalf of a client who’s highly confidential customer list had been sold to a competitor by a disgruntled former employee. The case thereafter settled on very favorable terms.
