Corporate marks are vulnerable. With a few clicks of a mouse, they can be misused by cyber-squatters, phishers, and deceptive marketers. We have a track record of success combating all forms of Internet trademark and service mark infringement and maintaining the value and integrity of clients' intellectual property.


Our attorneys are skilled in the use of federal laws such as the Anti-cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (ACPA), Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) proceedings, and Lanham Act to protect our clients from unauthorized use of their proprietary materials.

We have experience representing both complainants and respondents under the UDRP, and our attorneys are recognized WIPO arbitration neutrals.

We regularly counsel clients on Internet trademark issues, including:

  • Cybersquatting
  • Phishing
  • Deceptive marketing
  • False advertising
  • Counterfeiting
  • Keyword searching
  • Social networking sites
  • UDRP proceedings
