Intili & Groves handles the gamut of business and intellectual property disputes, including breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, trade secrets, unfair competition, antitrust, false and deceptive trade practices, employment, and intellectual property infringement cases.

When individuals or firms attempt to pass off your hard work and ingenuity as their own, we all suffer.  You suffer, because revenues are siphoned from your pocket to another’s preventing you from recouping your development costs and earning a fair return on your investment.  Others suffer, because they are deprived of the goods or services you would provide, the jobs you would create and the vendors you would patronize to support your enterprise.

We represent clients in variety of intellectual property disputes, including patent infringement, trademark/service mark infringement, copyright infringement, and misappropriation of trade secrets.  Those clients include professional athletes, sports equipment companies, robotics firms, toy companies, food distributors, brokerage firms, and commercial printers.  We also have extensive experience in related practice areas, such as unfair competition, violation of covenants not to compete, and false and deceptive trade practices.

If you suspect that you are being victimized by unfair competition, whether it is intellectual property infringement, or another form of business wrongdoing, please call us right away.  Not only can delay destroy your livelihood, it can limit your compensation and deprive you of the opportunity to obtain a temporary or permanent injunction, one of the strongest civil remedies the law provides.  We will work closely with your intellectual property counsel to pursue your legal rights in court.

Common topics of intellectual property infringement and unfair competition:

  • Patent infringement
  • Trademark infringement
  • Service mark infringement
  • Unfair competition
  • Misappropriation of trade secrets
  • Violations of the Uniform Trade Secrets Act (UTSA) and the Ohio Trade Secrets Act (OTSA)
  • Violations of restrictive covenants, including covenants not to compete
  • Violations of Ohio’s Deceptive Trade Practices Act
  • Lanham Act violations
  • Trademark dilution
  • Service mark dilution
  • Reverse confusion
  • Counterfeiting

Unlike most firms, we handle some, but not all, of our plaintiff’s business cases on a contingency fee basis.  In hourly fee engagements, we offer big firm expertise at small firm rates.  If you own a small business and need a trial attorney, call us before you take on a large firm’s overhead, fee structure and associate staffing.
