Antitrust and trade regulation
There are can be trade regulation issues that arise in connection with intellectual property transactions and litigation, specifically where the acquisition, sale or enforcement of intellectual property rights affect market power or lead to a restraint of trade. We understand this intersection and can counsel you on avoiding pitfalls and strategically exploiting opportunities as they arise. As the business marketplace becomes even more global in scope, you need attorneys who will keep you informed of changes and who understand international trade and intellectual property. We have appeared before and worked with the U.S. International Trade Commission and Customs and Border Protection in connection with enforcement of intellectual property rights, country of origin marking issues, and anti-boycotting policies.
