Coming to the Aid of Green Gobbler

Protecting the intellectual capital of clients across many industries

Intellectual property protection can provide a significant competitive advantage for companies and entrepreneurs. Intellectual property such as patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets are key business assets, and can often provide a company some form of exclusivity, and potentially a barrier to entry used to block competitors from a marketplace. Elizabeth Lai Featherman and Michael Kochka help our clients to manage and protect such valuable business assets. They help clients to devise patent and trademark strategies; protect their inventions with patents; protect their company names, logos and product branding with trademarks; and enforce their exclusive patent and trademark rights on infringers when necessary. When our client EcoClean Solutions decided to launch its Green Gobbler Drain Opening Pacs, a new product line of environmentally-friendly drain openers, Elizabeth and Michael helped them protect all aspects of this new product and product packaging, including securing patent and trademark rights and successfully enforcing its trademark and trade dress rights against an infringer that used a similar brand name and product packaging in an attempt to undermine EcoClean Solutions’ goodwill.
