Our areas of legal expertise also include patent litigation and trademark infringement. Our attorneys have served in the past as local counsel for national firms and companies involved in patent suits filed in the Eastern District of Texas. Thanks to our strong ties to East Texas and extensive trial experience, we can ably assist national firms in navigating the local practices and procedures unique to this district's federal courts.
Our firm's attorneys have also successfully represented clients in the midst of trademark disputes. For example, Trey Yarrough once successfully defended against a multi-million dollar trademark infringement claim filed against a Tyler company. Mr. Yarbrough successfully defended the company in federal court, securing a unanimous jury verdict in favor of the client on all claims. The Court subsequently found the case “exceptional” under the Lanham Act and awarded substantial attorney's fees and expenses to the firm's client.
