"Fross Zelnick Lehrman & Zissu is the quintessential IP firm." - Managing Intellectual Property magazine.

According to surveys of in-house and outside counsel in our field, Fross Zelnick is considered the premier firm in the world for trademark, copyright, design patent and unfair competition law, and we are probably the largest law firm dealing exclusively with this subject matter.

Litigate Intellectual Property Rights

Fross Zelnick stands alone in the top tier of trademark and copyright litigation firms in the U.S. Our reputation for successful litigation often leads to settling disputes without court proceedings. When litigation is unavoidable, our litigators know how to fight for clients and win. Internationally, Fross Zelnick has wide experience in foreign and multi-country trademark and copyright litigation and a history of success in recapturing pirated well-known marks.

Register Trademarks, Copyrights and Design Patents

Fross Zelnick is consistently among the top filers of U.S. trademark applications. We can register your trademarks, copyrights and design patents. Our specialized knowledge in this area means that we know how to get the job done efficiently and obtain rights that will stand up in court.

Combat Counterfeiting

We are highly experienced in anti-counterfeiting and enforcement matters. Fross Zelnick has developed sophisticated and cost-effective enforcement programs for our clients to prevent the importation, sale and distribution of a wide variety of infringing or counterfeit products including apparel, footwear, cosmetics and luxury goods. Included in these programs is the recordable of relevant intellectual property rights with Customs in the U.S. and internationally.

Manage Global Portfolios

We are known for providing expert global intellectual property management. Working closely with our select network of foreign counsel, Fross Zelnick protects intellectual property rights in the U.S. and throughout the world. Our experience enables us to identify, protect and defend your rights under copyright, trademark, trade dress, design patent, trade secret and related laws.

Negotiate IP Transactions

Whether you are buying or selling an entire business or part of a portfolio, Fross Zelnick can negotiate licenses and related agreements that safeguard your business and legal interests. We conduct due diligence reviews for mergers, acquisitions and other corporate ventures, and record the corporate changes against your IP registrations worldwide once the deal is done.

Protect Characters and Celebrities

For decades Fross Zelnick lawyers have protected famous entertainment characters through sophisticated copyright protection strategies and enforcement against infringers. We have also retrieved numerous infringing or disparaging trademarks and domain names for celebrities and litigated high-profile cases involving the unauthorized use of well-known names and likenesses.

Conquer the Internet

Internet law is evolving as rapidly as the medium itself and much of it is rooted in trademark and copyright law. Our lawyers litigate Uniform Dispute Resolution proceedings (UDRPs) against cyber squatters, advise on worldwide domain name registration and disputes, monitor the web for infringements, negotiate linking and key word agreements, draft privacy policies, and develop strategies for policing and protecting IP rights on the Internet.
