Represented the owner of the GLASS DOCTOR mark in a trademark infringement suit against a company that had used the mark WINDSHIELD DOCTOR for 17 years in a specific geographic territory. The defendant had prior actual use of its mark in that geographic area, but such use was junior to the client's federal registration. The defendant had also begun using GLASS DOCTOR interchangeably with its own mark. Obtained summary judgment enjoining the defendant’s use of both marks. On a trial on the appropriate quantum of monetary relief, we secured and then successfully defended on appeal an order requiring the defendant’s disgorgement of its profits.
