Services: Intellectual Property

A buyer for a retail company would be selecting new footwear to stock its shelves for an upcoming season. Before the buyer's selection would occur, however, each potential product was to be legally reviewed for any intellectual property concerns. As it turned out, the company had several hundred products to be reviewed in within an approximately two-week timeframe. Working night and day with our client contacts and other outside counsel, at the client's offices, we provided thorough analysis and clearance of hundreds of footwear designs. The designs were carefully reviewed for intellectual property issues such as those bearing on trade dress, trademarks, and patents. Ultimately, the buyer purchased nearly one hundred and fifty designs from the larger group of designs deemed legally clear by counsel.
