Intellectual Property Protection

Branding (Trademark) Protection & Litigation
Ms. Finnerty has handled cases that span numerous industries and implicate all types of trademark rights, including service marks, trade dress and trade names. Representing both plaintiffs and defendants, we have experience litigating both large and small trademark cases before courts throughout the country. We routinely appear before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and its Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB), the U.S. International Trade Commission, and other tribunals.

Copyright Protection & Litigation
We represent clients in copyright infringement disputes involving any form of reproduction or use of copyrighted material without permission. Representing both plaintiffs and defendants in copyright infringement disputes, we offer comprehensive knowledge in federal copyright laws and effective strategies to pursue financial relief or challenge infringement allegations.

Computer & Internet Litigation
As technology advances, a host of legal issues such as copyright and other intellectual property rights, Internet domain name disputes, contract and regulatory issues also arise. The Internet has caused a new paradigm in established legal principles relating to personal jurisdiction to those whose only contact with another state is through its web site and on-line sales of goods.

Ms. Finnerty has expertise representing technology companies in litigation and counseling matters involving copyright and DMCA, privacy, ECPA, data collection, Section 230(c) immunity, license disputes, unfair competition law, consumer class actions and other challenging issues arising in the digital environment.

Trade Secret Protection and Litigation
When litigation is necessary to protect our clients’ trade secrets or to address a challenge from a competitor, our trial lawyers draw on decades of experience in federal and state courts throughout the United States. Ms. Finnerty has successfully dozens hundreds of cases involving technologically advanced and complex innovations, and we have a proven track record in obtaining ex parte and preliminary injunctions to preserve trade secrets. The majority of these cases achieved a favorable settlement or capitulation before trial.
