Leslie Hartford represents companies across a variety of industries in resolving trademark, copyright, trade secret, and patent disputes. She is particularly adept at quickly assessing a company’s key business drivers and working with her clients to develop a strategic and early resolution.
I routinely monitor, protect, and enforce my clients’ marks. I handle all stages of trademark enforcement and defense, both in federal court and before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, as well as unfair competition and related cases. I also advise and represent clients on matters of copyright infringement and defense.
My commercial litigation practice includes managing litigation for software implementation disputes and related claims.
I help my clients approach claims of misappropriation and infringement. I have handled cases in diverse fields, including chemical catalyst technologies and consumer products.
In the wake of Fourth Estate, I anticipate a rise in copyright applications as this decision clarified that, generally, registration is a prerequisite to filing an infringement action even though copyright protection exists upon creation of a work.
