The Lomnitzer Law Firm, P.A., is South Florida’s premier intellectual property legal practice. Though we spend a significant amount of our time trying to avoid or resolve disputes quickly to keep our clients out of the courthouse, we are also home to an experienced team of aggressive intellectual property litigation attorneys who will not back down when our clients need to litigate.
Intellectual property disputes are not like typical lawsuits. When creativity and core competencies are on trial, you will need an attorney with legal skills, business acumen, and industry knowledge at your side. At Lomnitzer Law, we litigate high-stakes disputes over copyrights, trademarks, and patents in federal and state courts in South Florida, and across the country, to protect our client’s work, or defend them if their work is challenged.
Copyrighting a work of art like a book, piece of music, photograph, or website gives the owner the right to exclude others from:
- Reproducing or copying the work
- Preparing derivative works based upon the work
- Distributing copies of the work to the public for sale, rental or lease, or lending
- Performing the work publicly live or in a digital/audio transmission
- Displaying the work publicly
When the owner believes someone has violated their copyright by doing one of these things without permission, legal action may be appropriate. The owner can demand an immediate cease and desist of improper use or copy, and seek monetary damages for improper usage.
At Lomnitzer Law, we help copyright owners aggressively enforce their rights and protect their creations from infringers. We also defend people and businesses that are accused of violating a copyright. Having experience working on both sides of these disputes helps us quickly assess alleged violations so we can take quick action on behalf of our clients.
Whether a business or creator is trying to establish a foothold here in South Florida, or make a name for themselves worldwide, trademark protection can help them brand and expand. A trademark can identify and distinguish a product or service in the mind of consumers, give the creator a legal presumption of ownership nationwide, and provide the owner the exclusive right to use the mark on or in connection with the goods and/or services the mark applies to.
However, the benefits of obtaining a trademark are not self-executing. While the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) attempts to ensure that all trademarks are unique, current and aspiring trademark holders must actively protect their marks. Attorneys at the Lomnitzer Law Firm strive to ensure that our clients’ trademarks can be monetized and retain their value.
The Lomnitzer Law team aggressively protects the value of our client’s trademarks. We have argued against attempts to Oppose or Cancel trademarks at the USPTO’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB), and sought injunctions and monetary damages in state and federal courts.
We also defend South Florida creators and business owners accused of infringing on someone else’s trademark. The moment a cease and desist letter is received, we are ready to spring into action and strategize a plan with our clients to either settle or litigate.
The owner of a patent is empowered with exclusive rights to use or sell a product for a period of time. If someone violates those rights, the patent holder may take legal action against them.
The attorneys at Lomnitzer Law have the right mix of legal acumen, industry knowledge, and business sense to tackle any patent dispute. Over the years, we have represented both patent holders and those accused of violating patents, which has given an insightful advantage in the litigation process.
We also act as local counsel to out-of-state plaintiffs and defendants involved in intellectual property lawsuits filed in state and federal courts in Florida.
We Are Problem Solvers
The Lomnitzer Law team provides IP litigation services to a diverse array of businesses, inventors, and entrepreneurs. The members of our team have backgrounds in a number of different industries. We apply this knowledge to craft unique solutions and strategies for clients in all industries, including but not limited to, the entertainment, consumer products, technology, arts, and sporting industries.
We take a problem-solving approach to the law, and we understand that litigation is a means to an end, not the end goal. Our clients need to be able to create, build, and market their ideas and products, not spend their time navigating legal disputes. Lomnitzer Law clients can trust us to resolve their cases as quickly and efficiently as possible so they can move forward.
Oftentimes, the key to winning an IP lawsuit is making complex topics straightforward and easy-to-understand, as this is an area of law that most judges and juries may not have a lot of experience with. We know how to present a compelling argument that tells our client’s story to the judge and jury to persuade them of the merits of our client’s arguments.
Whether you are still at the whiteboard or ready to dominate the market, you can count on the Lomnitzer Law team to have your back when you face a legal challenge. While we do our best to resolve and avoid disputes before they wind up in court, when litigation is necessary, we aggressively advocate on behalf of our clients.
This, however, does not mean that we push our clients to adopt arguments and legal tactics they are uncomfortable with. Our clients are always the ones calling the shots. We evaluate and advise, then let our clients pick a path forward. We respect the creativity and business acumen that got our clients where they are today, and never force anyone to take a position or action they are uncomfortable with.
