Erica J. Van Loon is an experienced IP trial lawyer. She has a winning track record litigating copyright, trademark, patent, rights of publicity, trade secrets, invasion of privacy, defamation, business interference, and other media and entertainment claims. Erica was named the 2019 Intellectual Property Attorney of the Year by the Los Angeles Business Journal.
I have successfully litigated complex cases in both state and federal courts and on appeal. My experience extends across a wide range of industries, including entertainment and media, software and hardware, apparel and footwear, toys and video games, consumer electronics, beauty and personal care, and food and beverage, among others.
In addition, I counsel public and private companies and individuals on IP protection, enforcement, and defense strategy.
I enjoy working with clients to understand the ins and outs of their business in order to tailor a winning legal strategy that also makes business sense.
I see the increasing value of intellectual property assets and their vulnerability to cybertheft as a growing challenge. From malware attacks, to security breaches, to illegal downloads of copyrighted content, cybertheft is increasing and companies are paying the price. I expect cyberattacks to continue and I am prepared to help our clients deal successfully with an uptick in these infringement, theft, and privacy matters.
