Margolin and Lawrence Protects Skate Merchandise Trademark

Margolin and Lawrence helped its client, a skateboarding merchandise manufacturer, reach a favorable monetary settlement with a major drink producer. Has your intellectual property been infringed upon? Margolin and Lawrence can help.

Margolin and Lawrence’s client had been making its products and distributing them to skateboarding outlets and fans. A company ¬†behind a major soft drink identified the product as appealing to its audience. Rather than license the merchandise and brand from its creator, the soft drink maker simply released a copycat product of its own. Margolin and Lawrence made sure its client was quickly and justly compensated for its invention.
