Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP is pleased to announce the publication of the 2018-2019 edition of “Unfair Competition and the ITC: A Treatise on Section 337 Actions,” authored by partners Aimee N. Soucie and Paul T. Qualey.
Well-regarded in navigating intellectual property (IP) litigation in the International Trade Commission (ITC), the treatise provides in-depth guidance regarding section 337 investigations conducted to resolve disputes over alleged patent, trademark and copyright infringement, and other allegations of unfair competition, such as trade secret misappropriation and false advertising, with respect to products that are imported into, sold for importation into and/or sold in the United States after importation from abroad. Lawyers from the firm have authored the treatise for decades, first at Kenyon & Kenyon, then Andrews Kurth Kenyon, and now Hunton Andrews Kurth. The book is published by Thomson Reuters and is updated annually.
The legacy firm of Kenyon & Kenyon first become familiar with the ITC as a venue in the 1970s; Kenyon was later joined in the 1980s by a former Chief Administrative Law Judge of the ITC, who helped develop the skilled practice that continues to thrive today: more than a third of the lawyers in the firm’s IP group have worked on multiple ITC investigations. The firm’s current ITC team, led by a former Attorney Advisor to the ITC Administrative Law Judges, has been involved in precedent-setting investigations, representing both US-based and international companies in over 50 Section 337 investigations during the past 10 years alone.
