Some of Our Intellectual Property Disputes Cases

  • Prosecuted claims on behalf of fruit bar (paleta) manufacturers against distributor of ice cream products for unfair competition and violations of federal and state antitrust law.  Case was settled under an agreement by which distributor aborted its “customer loyalty” program, which violated laws respecting tying arrangements, and agreed to refrain from requiring tying arrangements.
