Herrick, Feinstein LLP was retained by the producer of a premier electronic dance music event in a federal trademark infringement and breach of contract lawsuit against an electronic dance music record label. The case eventually went to trial in U.S. District Court in New York, and the Herrick litigators knew it would be important to visually illustrate their trademark infringement claims to jurors in a clear and persuasive manner.

The Herrick team relied on LexisNexis® Sanction® litigation presentation software to manage and present evidence throughout the trial. The litigators used Sanction to show the jurors compelling images that provided dramatic visual examples of how customers were confused by the defendant who allegedly traded off of the brand name and logo owned by Herrick’s client.

After a two-week jury trial—on the eve of the case going to the jury for deliberations—the defendant agreed to the terms of a settlement with Herrick’s client. The favorable settlement protects the festival organizer’s trademarks and expands its global music festival opportunities.
