About This Firm

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.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.

Anonymity

Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
