An engineer by training, Anthony Lo Cicero has represented companies in patent and trademark litigation involving product areas as diverse as e-commerce platforms, angular rate sensors, camcorders and textiles. He conducts due diligence of IP portfolios and provides strategic patent counseling to companies in a wide range of industries from recorded and published music to consumer electronics.
Very sophisticated technology competes with style and price as key aspects of the customer experience in the fashion industry. Mr. Lo Cicero represents some of the most prominent brick-and-mortar and on-line retailers in the country in patent disputes relating to the enterprise’s e-commerce, mobile and point of sale systems. The retail industry regularly confronts patent assertions involving mobile platforms, electronic merchandise presentation, billing, marketing, inventory management and other features of the 21st century marketplace. Mr. Lo Cicero evaluates and responds to these assertions in a practical, business-oriented manner. For example, on behalf of one retailer, he obtained dismissals of several actions for little or no payment. Mr. Lo Cicero also evaluates contractual terms with vendors and suppliers to mitigate liability and works with retailers to identify and obtain protection for their own innovations. He has assisted retailers in successfully pursuing indemnification claims ranging to seven-figure settlements.
Restaurants, financial institutions, insurance companies, health care institutions, consumer product manufacturers and other businesses likewise rely on technology to bind customers, improve the customer experience, differentiate themselves and stimulate demand. Mr. Lo Cicero advises clients on freedom to operate issues, prosecutes patents and defends them in litigation.
Many of the most prestigious apparel manufacturers and retailers in the world, along with financial services, food products, computer, consumer electronics, home products, and toy companies also turn to Mr. Lo Cicero for trademark protection. He advances brand development and enforcement strategies ranging from anti-counterfeiting and trademark infringement protection to trade dress and Internet domain matters. For example, he overcame significant legal obstacles to protecting a name and symbol for what is now one of the best-known prestige brands in the country. On many occasions, he has been called upon to enforce trademark rights for entities that that do not have the advantage of a federal trademark registration.
