Domain Names


We advise clients on using domain name registrations to protect their valuable brands and reputations. We also advise clients on strategies for dealing with the many changes to the online landscape that will be effected with the imminent opening of new generic top level domains (gTLDs).

Our attorneys are also well versed in arbitrations under the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (UDRP) of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and in the alternative dispute mechanisms set up for many individual country code top level domains. We have obtained cancellation or transfer of dozens of domain names that infringed or diluted clients’ marks in multiple domain name arbitrations.
