Trademark Litigation

At Quarles & Brady, our trademark litigation attorneys are focused on managing and protecting the valuable brands and intellectual property of our clients. Rather than litigate for litigation's sake, our team efforts serve clients' business needs and aim to help them achieve their business goals. We strategically employ the wide range of tools at our disposal to enforce and protect trademarks, as well as defend against infringement claims, and have extensive experience successfully employing motions for preliminary injunctions and temporary restraining orders.

Our team is well-versed in the full range of issues and matters relevant to trademarks and trademark law, including trade dress, trademark prosecution and defense, and unfair competition. We have established worldwide trademark and domain name policing programs.

When litigation is imminent, as it sometimes is, our team is well-positioned to handle the most complex cases in virtually any forum, including infringement claims in state and federal courts; oppositions and cancellation proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board; appeals to the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC); prosecution and defense of false advertising, right of publicity, and intellectual property licensing disputes in state and federal courts; prosecution and defense of domain name disputes under the UDRP and in state and federal courts. In conjunction with our international network of attorneys, we handle related matters in foreign courts and before international trade organizations and administrative bodies.
