ABOUT THIS COMPANY:M&G equals IP
M&G equals IP. Merchant & Gould works exclusively on patent, trademark, and copyright issues. The firm was recently nationally ranked as one of the top two trademark-filing firms by Intellectual Property Today and one of the top seven IP plaintiff firms by IP Law & Business.
What does IP work mean? Staple diet at M&G includes the obtaining and registration of patents and trademarks for corporate clients, and also the counseling and litigation that goes with contested uses of the IP. What does that mean? An M&G lawyer successfully represented a company in the claim that John Deere can't stop competitors from painting their tractors green.
Unfortunately that same lawyer--partner Alan Carlson, a 31-year veteran of the firm and the firm's seventh attorney when he joined up in 1971--took flight with six others in early 2003. Carlson established his own firm with a greater focus on IP litigation. The stated reason was that the lawyers wanted a new challenge.
