Offense plus defense

Unfair Competition Law

​Unfair competition law is one of the most important disciplines of our IP practice. We provide expertise for the defense and prosecution of unfair competition violations by competitors, as well as advice on potential violations by our clients. Avoiding disputes is a top priority of our unfair competition practice.

If a dispute is unavoidable, we counsel and represent clients in legal actions, filing preliminary injunctions or anticipatory briefs for protection from preliminary injunction without a prior hearing, and drafting cease and desist letters. In many cases we also represent clients in unfair competition disputes with business or consumer associations, professional associations or guilds.
