Atlanta Copyright & Trademark Lawyers
Experienced Defense Lawyers Serving All of Georgia
Copyright and trademark offenses have caught the attention of federal prosecutors. Trade associations are notorious for policing questionable sales on eBay, Craigslist, and in showrooms across the world. Suspicious activity is quickly brought to federal prosecutors' attention and can be prosecuted criminally. Federal sentencing guidelines can magnify the potential impact of these charges.
At the law offices of Nicholas Lotito and Seth Kirschenbaum, we focus on lessening the weight of a criminal investigation. Our attorneys each have more than 30 years of experience and are prepared to fight for a dismissal or seek to mitigate the charges or consequences of a prosecution.

Mounting an Effective Defense Strategy
Our attorneys are former federal prosecutors. We know firsthand how federal investigations proceed, how evidence is collected, and the kind of tactics prosecutors use. We also have an in-depth understanding of copyright and trademark law. Our legal team is not afraid to try cases in federal court when necessary.
We begin our work through digging into the facts and conducting our own investigation. Our legal team consults industry experts to uncover exculpatory evidence including whether an infringement exists and, if so, determine a proper valuation of the infringing items, an important factor that impacts sentencing guidelines. We also seek to understand if you intentionally used another company's intellectual property. Our firm is prepared to mount a strong defense showing you did not deliberately commit copyright infringement.
Seeking to Mitigate the Penalties
If you are convicted of an intellectual property crime, potential penalties can range from hefty fines to jail time, depending on the value of the commercial items. The attorneys at our criminal defense law firm consult forensic accountant experts to determine the real value of items involved in copyright infringement. Our credibility with federal judges and prosecutors help us effectively negotiate and achieve favorable results.
