Litigation / Interference

Litigation / Interference | Scully Scott Murphy & Presser PC

Our litigation experience is technologically and geographically speaking, borderless. We litigate patents, trademarks, trade secrets and copyrights in a boundless range of technologic and commercial environments and possess a domestic and international reputation of being focused and committed to the protection and enforcement of intellectual property.

We securedĀ a substantial monetary settlement for a major defense contractor in enforcing its patents on 3D graphics originally developed for flight simulators, now prevalent in video games and animated films. In addition, we have protected multimillion-dollar licensing programs, including the prostate specific antigen (PSA) diagnostic test, 99mTc myocardial diagnostic agents, a computer display system for a major defense contractor, electrical phrenic nerve stimulators and garment hangers for an international industry leader.

Our versatility is further complimented with extensive experience in interference practice (now derivation proceedings) in the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Since our inception, we have cleared the way for patents for both large and small corporations and have worked closely on early landmark decisions such as Squires v. Corbett and Driscoll v. Cebalo.

We are experienced in all aspects of trademark and unfair competition litigation including trade dress infringement, counterfeiting, false advertising, “grey market” actions and trade disparagement under Section 43(a) of the Lanham Act. These actions may involve RICO, antitrust and advertisement laws where applicable. Our firm has counseled client on ITC matters and has brought and/or successfully defended seizure actions and customs proceedings.
