Matters We Handle

Each Florida IP litigation lawyer at Lott & Fischer has deep experience representing clients at all stages of the litigation process. Along with intellectual property litigation in U.S. federal courts, this includes international IP litigation as well. We regularly represent clients in matters including:

Patent Litigation

We represent patent owners in infringement litigation as well as litigation involving efforts to invalidate their patents and litigation arising out of licenses, assignments and other contracts. We also defend companies facing infringement, breach-of-contract and other patent-related allegations.

Trademark Litigation

We handle all types of trademark litigation in the U.S. and worldwide. This includes infringement and contract-based litigation as well as opposition and cancellation proceedings before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), its Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB), and other registrars and tribunals around the globe.

Copyright Litigation

Like patents and trademarks, copyrights are eligible for registration in the U.S. and other countries, and registration affords certain protections that are not available to unregistered copyright owners. In all cases, however, infringement and other violations can present risks for substantial economic losses, and successfully pursuing copyright litigation can be crucial for protecting companies’ original works and their commercial potential.

Trade Secret Litigation

While trade secrets are not registerable in the United States, there are still several means of protection available at both the federal and state level. As with all forms of intellectual property, when faced with a potential violation of a company’s exclusive trade secret rights, taking legal action promptly can be critical for preserving the available protections and minimizing the losses that the company needs to recover.

Rights of Publicity Litigation

Rights of publicity protect individuals’ name, image and likeness. They are critical not only to protecting high-profile individuals’ privacy, but also for protecting their ability to commercialize their name, image and likeness should they choose to do so. While rights of publicity have always played an important role in the entertainment industry and professional sports, with undergraduate athletes now having the ability to commercialize their fame, disputes involving rights of publicity are becoming increasingly common at the college level as well.

Domain Name Disputes

Similar to other types of intangible assets, domain names now routinely exchange hands for seven-figure sums. Domain names are big business, and disputes involving domain names can have a lot at stake for all parties involved. Within our trademark litigation practice, we regularly handle disputes involving domain names—representing domain name owners, trademark owners and other interested parties.
