Counterfeit and gray market goods are a growing problem for many companies in the United States. Gray market goods are products that bear one or more U.S. trademarks that are being sold in the United States without the consent of the manufacturer or brand owner. This practice, which often also involves the sale of counterfeit goods, can cause confusion for customers – leading to lost profits and harm to the brand.
Our team has proven time and again that companies can achieve success in combating counterfeit and gray market goods both before the International Trade Commission and in federal district courts. We assist in protecting trademarks, copyrights, and patents from unauthorized use, counterfeiting, and infringement within the gray market. Some of the results obtained for our clients include ex parte seizure orders, temporary restraining orders, general exclusion orders, monetary damages, and preliminary and permanent injunctive relief.
