Be Fab with TTAB: Tips for Successfully Pursuing, Defending, and Settling TTAB Disputes

11:00 AM - 12:10 PM ET

Trademark litigation can be time-consuming and expensive. Whether your clients are the plaintiffs or the defendants in a trademark infringement case, it is important to know how to advise them. Should they initiate a TTAB proceeding? Should they settle? Should they take the case to district court? In this session, trademark litigator and Knobbe Martens partner Jonathan Menkes will discuss TTAB proceedings and district court litigation. He'll provide a basic primer of both and discuss topics such as:

  • The advantages and disadvantages of TTAB proceedings
  • How to determine what a successful resolution would entail
  • Tips for ensuring successful settlements
  • When to bypass TTAB and file litigation directly in district court
