Favorable Unfair Competition/Trademark Infringement Settlement Obtained
for Global DNA Nutritional Client Against Competitor
Coming off the heels of her fraud jury verdict for our franchisee client, SWB attorney Regina Schneider favorably settled an unfair competition/trademark infringement lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. Ms. Schneider successfully represented a worldwide leading distributor of DNA-based custom nutrition against a competitor for unfair competition and trademark infringement by using marks confusingly similar to our client’s registered marks.
After limited discovery and brief motion practice, our client’s competitor agreed to a settlement protecting our client’s intellectual property and other proprietary information by prohibiting its use of confusingly similar marks and soliciting our client’s promotors.
Congratulations, Regina, on a terrific business result for our client!
