The team at McDermott Will & Emery LLP represents a number of clients active in the alcoholic beverages sector. It recently acted for Brooklyn Brewery in two TTAB matters which respectively sought to cancel registrations by Brooklyn Pour and Brooklyn Brew Shop. Richard Kim, John Dabney and Mary Hallerman led on both matters and all three are currently acting for Creative Technology, owner of the BLASTER brand, in opposition to applications filed by Monster. It is argued that the applied-for trademarks, 'Monster Blaster' and 'Monster Blaster Ravebox', are likely to cause confusion with the client’s own marks. Additional industries of expertise include technology, life sciences, IT and apparel. Dabney serves as co-head with Chicago-based Jennifer Mikulina. Jorge Arciniega is a name to note in Los Angeles while Robert Zelnick is also recommended. Named attorneys are based in Washington DC unless otherwise stated.
