Trademark Litigation

Success In Trademark Litigation

At Pierce & O’Neill, LLP, we take on a broad range of disputes involving the maintenance and defense of trademark, trade name and trade dress infringement actions for companies across Texas and the United States. Our efforts in this field include representing clients in temporary restraining orders, in preliminary and permanent injunctions, and in trial.

Companies of all sizes and in a broad range of industries rely on the experience of our attorneys when it comes to the prosecution or defense of claims when there are hundreds of millions of dollars or more on the line. For example, founding partner Jack O’Neill was lead counsel in the successful defense of a corporation in a trademark infringement trial. While the plaintiffs sought more than $1 billion in damages, the jury ruled unanimously in favor of the client.

Proven Trademark Success

Furthermore, our lawyers have achieved success in other claims as well, such as the following:

  • Defense of a toy manufacturer in a trademark infringement trial
  • Obtained a favorable ruling from the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals when representing a foreign manufacturer against claims of trademark infringement, copyright infringement and unfair competition

Our lawyers have experience defending other types of intellectual property claims, such as patent, trade secret and copyright infringement. In all matters, our careful judgment, honed over years of practice, helps us identify the strategies most likely to accomplish our clients’ objectives in an effective, economical fashion.
