Morrison & Foerster stands out from the pack when it comes to representing consumer brands. Our lawyers have seen it all, from complex deal structures and corporate transactions to large class actions, mass tort claims, multidistrict litigation and high-stakes trials. That is why some of the world's most recognizable brand names rely on us for strategic legal advice, including Capital One, Intel, JPMorgan Chase, Panasonic, Toshiba, UPS, Verizon Wireless, Visa, Target and Yahoo!
Our lawyers work closely with global brands such as Campari, Cherokee, Clorox, Softbank, Toshiba and Visa on a range of corporate and transactional matters, including mergers and acquisitions, strategic alliances, public offerings, licensing and outsourcing matters. We also represent clients who are developing new and emerging brands like popchips, Ancestry.com, Leap Frog and Revolution Foods. We recently completed initial public offerings and other public equity offerings in excess of $2 billion for leading brands RE/MAX and Restoration Hardware.
Our litigators help protect our clients' brand integrity when they are accused of deceptive or false advertising, unfair business practices, fraud, product defects, privacy breaches or toxic exposures, among other claims. We approach all litigation in a manner that minimizes damage to the brand and is consistent with our clients' business objectives. In addition, our IP litigators aggressively defend our clients' innovations in the courtroom. We have advised Lucasfilm, Oracle, Restoration Hardware and Verizon, among others, with brand or trade dress infringement matters including cases involving counterfeiting, product knock-offs and diversion.
The breadth of our experience allows us to represent brands spanning the full spectrum from prestige and luxury to mass market, including lifestyle, apparel and accessories, cosmetics and personal care, financial services, office products, sports equipment, textiles and toy, leisure and gaming, restaurant and hospitality, food and beverage, consumer electronics and home and garden.
