Structure promotional offers, discounts, rebates, coupons, and loyalty programs. Negotiate cobranding, sponsorship, agency-client, and promotion services agreements.

Enforcement and Litigation. Establish worldwide trademark and domain name policing programs. Litigate copyright and trademark infringement and unfair competition cases in federal and state courts across the country, in the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Also litigate these matters, in conjunction with our international network of attorneys, in foreign courts and before international trade organizations and administrative bodies.
