With brand specialists on both coasts, along with Minnesota and Texas, the trademark team at Norton Rose Fulbright is well placed to help clients with almost any issue. The firm has three offices in Texas, all of which played some part in the approximately 400 trademark searches, 150 opposition and cancellation proceedings, and numerous disputes the group is involved in every year. In Dallas, partner Linda Merritt focuses her practice on trademark, trade dress, copyright and technology matters, both contentious and non-contentious. One major patron, for whom she handles prosecution work and enforcement actions at the TTAB, is a tech company that operates a number of dating applications. She was also involved in a district court litigation on behalf of a confidential client, which involved the assertion of post-mortem rights of publicity. The result was a court-issued permanent injunction against the defendants.
