    CASE STUDY

    Tory Burch

    Trade Dress Dispute

    Partnering with in-house counsel, Kilpatrick Townsend successfully settled a high-profile trade dress dispute for longtime client and women’s high-fashion brand Tory Burch. More than 300 IP attorneys strong, the firm played a critical role in developing the eponymous fashion brand’s short- and long-term IP strategies, making our insights into the case invaluable. As such, we continue to advise the brand and collaborate on its strategic IP initiatives.
