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.

Steve Baird’s Session
The Year in Trademark Law: Lessons from Ten Cases Involving Fashion, Food, Liquor and Entertainment
Thursday, September 22, 2011
Breakout Session C – 2:45 to 3:45 p.m.

Trademark attorneys Stephen Baird and Paul Mussell analyze the practical implications of this year’s ten most significant trademark decisions; including Superior Seafoods, Inc. v. Hanft Fride P.A., Levi Strauss & Company v. Abercrombie & Fitch Trading Company, and Eva’s Bridal Ltd. v. Halanick Enterprises Inc. This year’s cases reinforce valuable lessons about likelihood of confusion, assignment of trademark rights, dilution, and trademark licensing.
