CAP Barbell, Inc.
I’m the head of intellectual property for CAP Barbell, a leading provider of fitness equipment in North America. Unfortunately, as our products and brand have grown in popularity, so too have the number of people copying our intellectual property and misappropriating the goodwill we have built over the years. Demand for our products grew substantially during COVID – so too did counterfeiters that appear in markets like Amazon which was flooded with counterfeit products that copied the CAP Barbell branding and product design.
Cabello Hall Zinda came highly recommended to me by an attorney I have used over the years. As soon as I retained them, they aggressively pursued claims against the counterfeiting companies by filing a federal lawsuit and successfully obtaining a temporary restraining order within weeks. This was a significant victory because our attorneys used the TRO to demand that Amazon immediately shut down the accounts of counterfeiters. Amazon complied by freezing the accounts of suspected counterfeiters and Cabello Hall Zinda then obtained a preliminary junction and eventually a permanent injunction directed at any further fraudulent activity.
From the very beginning, Cabello Hall Zinda communicated with me clearly to help me understand all available legal strategies, the costs associated with each strategy, and the benefits and drawbacks of each strategy. They have been efficient and thorough in their work, and they have impressed me with their ability to present our case before the court. Overall, I’m very happy with their representation, and I have continued to use their firm for other intellectual property issues as they arise. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of top-of-the-line IP litigation attorneys.
