Represented Georgia-Pacific LLC in a trademark infringement suit brought against it by one of its major competitors in the building materials industry. The competitor sought to enjoin its use of the HOME ADVANTAGE mark for the same type of goods as the competitor sold under the ADVANTECH mark. Following expedited discovery and an extended evidentiary hearing, we defeated the plaintiff’s motion for preliminary injunction that would have halted sales to our client’s most significant customer and severely harmed that relationship. Defeat of the motion caused the plaintiff to dismiss the case in its entirety. J.M. Huber Corp. v. Georgia-Pacific Corp., No. 3:03CV567 (W.D. N.C. filed Nov. 26, 2003).
