Silver - Firms: enforcement and litigation
An “excellent firm with phenomenal trademark attorneys”, Weil Gotshal matches cutting-edge knowledge on trademark liability issues with finely honed transactional IP and litigation skills, and so fits the bill perfectly when legal and business matters arise at the intersection of brands and technology. Anchoring the practice in New York, Randi Singer is one of the organisation’s top non-patent IP litigators, with a talent for unravelling complex trademark problems and developing strategies to overcome them. She is currently defending Samsung in an action against Swatch Group, which has alleged direct and contributory trademark infringement and trademark counterfeiting; and recently secured a favourable outcome – including the dismissal of claims – for client Janssen in false advertising cases brought by Novartis relating to promotional materials showing the results of a head-to-head study that compared their different psoriasis treatments. Fellow litigation partner Jessica Falk is also someone to keep on the radar; she knows all the ins and outs of the industries she works with and makes obvious the value of her rigorous preparation when it’s time to head into battle.
