Joshua Pollack is a trial attorney with more than 26 years of experience successfully representing clients in high-stakes litigation in federal and state courts across the country.
I have extensive experience representing clients in complex commercial litigation matters. I advise a wide range of businesses and industries, including financial institutions, hedge funds, manufacturing, real estate, entertainment and media, apparel, retail, and hospitality. I have successfully represented corporate and individual clients on a wide variety of matters involving claims for breach of contract, fraud, negligence, strict liability, breach of warranty, unfair competition, business interference, and false advertising. I also represent clients in intellectual property litigation matters including copyright, trademark, and patent ownership and infringement claims.
In addition to commercial and IP litigation, I also have over a decade of experience representing policyholders in disputes with insurance companies and litigating coverage matters from coast-to coast. I have counseled clients with regard to designing pre-litigation insurance coverage strategies and conducted policy reviews and analyses.
With courts facing a significant backlog due to the pandemic, I see clients more focused on trying to avoid or address disputes before they end up in litigation. When litigation becomes unavoidable, clients will be looking for highly experienced lawyers who know the right balance between aggressive litigation and finding the most efficient and cost-effective path to achieving their goals.
This article covering four petitions filed recently with the US Supreme Court highlights Hasbro Inc.’s filing asking the justices to reverse a First Circuit panel’s June refusal to award $1.9 million in attorney fees after defeating a copyright suit over the Game of Life. The petition argues that SCOTUS should address a split among circuit courts and determine the proper standard for reviewing attorney fee requests under Section 505 of the Copyright Act. The article mentions Los Angeles Intellectual Property partner Erica Van Loon and counsel Josh Pollack for representing Hasbro and heirs of game developer Reuben Klamer.
