Katten represents clients from a wide array of sectors with particular expertise in acting for clients in the fashion and entertainment industries. The ‘proactive’ attorneys are ‘excellent communicators’ and ‘experts in domestic and international matters’. Chicago-based Floyd Mandell successfully defended PepsiCo in a dispute where plaintiff SportFuel alleged that the client’s use of the tagline ‘Gatorade. The Sports Fuel Company’ infringed upon its trademarks. In another high-profile highlight, the team currently represents Forever 21 in a dispute with adidas concerning the use of striped designs on apparel. New York-based Karen Artz Ash ensures ‘that nothing is overlooked’, she leads the practice with Mandell.
