Brian Michalek, a partner in the Firm's Life Sciences and IP Litigation Practice, authored this article for the National Law Journal. Brian discussed the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Iancu v. Brunetti and its impact.

"Although the Brunetti Supreme Court stripped away a portion of the Lanham Act which previously prevented the registering of offensive trademarks, the practical considerations and other Lanham Act requirements make it less likely of any 'coming rush' of offensive trademark registrations," wrote Brian.
