Wolf Greenfield Shortlisted for IP Team of the Year at Luxury Law Awards

Wolf Greenfield is among two law firms that are finalists in the IP Team of the Year category at the Luxury Law Awards 2023. This award seeks to single out an intellectual property team that has advised on a cutting-edge IP matter for a luxury client. The judges look for evidence of technical legal skill, innovation, team working, client satisfaction, and the value delivered to the client. Wolf Greenfield is shortlisted for helping Thom Browne, Inc., a luxury fashion brand based in New York City, win a widely publicized trademark trial.

Wolf Greenfield achieved a victory on behalf of Thom Browne, Inc. in a trademark infringement lawsuit brought by adidas in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York. Covered by media outlets such as The New York Times, Bloomberg, Forbes, Fortune, Business Insider, ABC, BBC, CNN, Vogue Business, and more, the trial ended with a unanimous decision in which a Manhattan federal jury found Thom Browne did not infringe or dilute adidas’s alleged “Three-Stripe Mark.” 

The Wolf Greenfield team consisted of Rob Maldonado, Tonia Sayour, John Strand, John L. Welch, Bryan Conley, Aya Cieslak-TochigiKira-Khanh McCarthy, and Marie McKiernan. The team worked closely with Harley Lewin of LewinConsult, LLC.
