Because of my career, I have had relationships with five different law firms in Minneapolis, and I always come back to Winthrop & Weinstine[…]I would recommend them for both small cases and large ones. I have used them in both and have never been disappointed.

Lawyer Who Started Fight Over "R-Word" Mascot Awaits Decision - Minnesota Lawyer

Trademark attorney Stephen Baird was profiled in the Minnesota Lawyer article "Lawyer who started fight over ‘R-word’ mascot awaits decision."  The article summarizes Baird's involvement in the lawsuit against the Washington Redskins' federal trademark protections.  Though his work on the case ended when he moved to Winthrop & Weinstine, a new group of plaintiffs has reprised the trademark challenge, using Baird's original argument with even more evidence.  A federal judge in the Eastern District of Virginia will hear oral arguments next month, and then the case will likely go to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals.
