Trademarks • Fashion Law • Business and Personal Injury
The Bostany Law Firm PLLC works hard for justice and fairness in the arts, for example protecting music artists such as Demme Ulloa on Jay-Z's Blueprint, the designers of “Sexy Little Things” by Victoria's Secret , Trademark owners such as Sex Court against Playboy, and the Women’s Shoe Magazine stopping American Media/Stallone from using SLY , protecting a Bachata band’s rights to the LOISAIDAS trademark used by Kanye West, , and stopping a competitor from copying the popular NYC and Hollywood hot spot Bathtub Gin.
It is important to Designers to have an attorney that understands the components of Design Protection under the rapidly changing laws of Trade Dress in the Longchamp case and persuading the esteemed 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals to find Aaron Langman to be a “joint author” in a case against Samsung America, 160 F.3d 106. (see Art & Fashion category)
The Firm has also obtained outstanding results for its select few personal injury cases involving tragically injured Plaintiffs, which include a favorable ruling in the 3d Circuit Court of Appeals for THERESA TORMENIA who was trapped in a defective revolving door, a verdict in favor of a Hamptons’ motorcyclist that almost lost his legs and recovery for two young teens that were fatally wounded by an intoxicated driver.
