Unfair Competition and Trade Regulation

Companies seeking to protect their intellectual property assets are not limited to patents, trademarks, and copyrights. There are numerous federal, state, and common law statutes that are also designed to protect valuable business information and competition in the business environment. Protections available under the rubrics of unfair competition or unfair trade practices include, for example, antitrust, federal unfair competition, and false advertising under Section 43(a) of the Lanham Act, federal and state computer fraud statutes, state contract, and employment law covering inventions and non-disclosure and non-compete agreements, trade secret laws, as well as laws recognizing the right of publicity. The attorneys at Kenyon & Kenyon LLP have worked with clients to maximize the protection of their intellectual property and navigate the tangle of statutory and common law, unfair competition, and unfair trade practice law. 

Since the body of unfair competition and unfair trade practice law is often intertwined with patents, trademarks, and copyrights, Kenyon, as a premier provider of intellectual property legal services, is strategically placed to handle these matters. Our attorneys have drafted agreements and licenses protecting the intellectual property assets of our clients and litigated on behalf of our clients to resolve questions of competitive activities. We pride ourselves on leveling the playing field in the business arena and, when necessary, in the courtroom so that our clients are able to fairly compete in the marketplace.
