Intellectual Property Litigation

Proactive and Aggressive Intellectual Property Protection and Litigation

Blecher Collins & Pepperman has an extensive record of effective representation in intellectual property litigation. We have prosecuted and defended infringement and trade secrets cases on behalf of small, medium-sized, and major corporations across a wide range of industries, from manufacturers to fashion to entertainment media.

We take proactive and aggressive measures to safeguard clients’ proprietary rights, including injunctions to halt counterfeiting, piracy, and infringement, and pursue damages for tangible loss to a business and the competitor’s illicit gain. Our advocacy has extended to class actions, including the certification of class action cases on behalf of musical composers against networks and studios. We also have successfully defended clients against baseless lawsuits over IP issues.

Our cases have spanned the spectrum of unauthorized or uncompensated use of musical compositions and sound recordings, disputes over screenplay attribution, breaches of recording contracts, pirated software, infringement of logos, trade names, marks, and slogans, as well as corporate espionage. Our skilled trial lawyers pursue all available remedies, including declaratory relief to establish the parameters of trademarks, copyrights, patents, and contracts, injunctive relief, disgorgement of profits, statutory damages, and attorneys’ fees.

Our range of intellectual property expertise includes:

  • Copyright infringement and piracy
  • Trademark service mark, trade dress infringement, and counterfeiting
  • Patent infringement
  • Theft of trade secrets
  • Violations of non-disclosure agreements
  • Breach of licensing agreements and other contracts
