As a business owner, one of the most stressful experiences you can have is to be sued for trademark infringement. Fortunately, if you are experiencing this type of business formation and planning employment litigation, you do not have to navigate the experience alone. An attorney can help to defend you against a trademark infringement action in Massachusetts.
An attorney can provide aggressive representation under the Lanham Act’s Section 43(a). This is essentially a trademark statute created with the goal of protecting businesses from misleading labeling or advertising, which can lead to unfair competition. Your attorney can also represent you under other applicable state and federal laws, such as the Trademark Counterfeiting Act of 1984.
Legal representation can help you whether you have been accused of infringing on someone else’s trademark in the broadcast and print media or in trade and packaging dress. An attorney’s guidance can also be helpful if you are involved in a situation involving cybersquatting as well as defamatory social media statements and claims of comparative advertising. Your attorney will analyze every aspect of your case and then develop a strategy that is in your best interests. You may be able to achieve your desired results without having to go to court — for example, through negotiation. However, your attorney can also vigorously defend you against litigation in court if necessary.
