Smith, Gambrell and Russell IP Attorneys Assist Saul Lefkowitz Moot Court Competition

Sponsored by the International Trademark Association, the Saul Lefkowitz Moot Court Competition is an annual event and approximately 80 teams of law students participate in the competition each year. Students write a brief and argue the case in regional and national competitions before a panel of volunteer lawyers, judges and members of the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.  At the regional competition held in Atlanta on February 7, 2015, Joyce Klemmer, a Partner in SGR’s Intellectual Property section in Atlanta served as a judge in the competition.  Partner Elizabeth Borland and Associate Courtney Adams reviewed and graded briefs that were submitted on this year’s subject which raised issues of trademark “tacking” (using the priority date of an original trademark for a revised, modernized mark) and the applicability of the presumption of irreparable injury in a trademark case.
