Christina J. Moser
has broad experience enforcing intellectual property and related rights for clients ranging from multinational industrial corporations to medical device firms, to artists and organizations in the music and film industries.
Ms. Moser has represented clients in state and federal courts across the United States, including California, Ohio, the Southern and Eastern Districts of Texas, the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and the District of Massachusetts. She has prepared and filed complaints, organized and conducted discovery, obtained preliminary injunctions against trademark counterfeiters, briefed a wide range of procedural and substantive issues, assisted in patent claim construction hearings and successfully enforced hard-won settlement agreements.
Recently, on behalf of the defendant in a patent infringement lawsuit, her thorough investigation skills turned up a prior trade secret lawsuit by the plaintiff involving the claimed technology that had not been disclosed to the Patent Office. As a result of this discovery, the client was able to successfully settle the matter at an early stage.
Ms. Moser’s trial experience includes serving as lead counsel for a successful bench trial, which was later upheld on appeal (Schleimer v. Winter
(L.A.S.C. 2001)) and serving as second chair in Duramax, Inc. v. Roppe Corporation
, N.D. Ohio Case No. 03cv7571, a patent infringement matter involving a flooring device that resulted in a finding of non-infringement and a declaration of invalidity in favor of the firm’s client. Her published opinions include Scott Fetzer Co. v. Gehring
, 288 F. Supp. 2d 696 (E.D.Pa. 2003), in which the court determined that the
KIRBY mark was “famous” and infringed.
Ms. Moser also has extensive experience advising on corporate best practices and enforcement strategies, overseeing due diligence investigations and managing trademark prosecutions and oppositions in both the United States and abroad.
