Team: Tim O’Callaghan

Service: Intellectual Property | Intellectual Property & Technology | Intellectual Property Litigation | Trade Marks

Ziptrak is the original outdoor blind system with a patented, track-guided design that glides smoothly and stops at any height. The products are made, invented, and owned in Australia. The company is committed to protecting its brand and trademark in Australia and worldwide. Ziptrak had a complex trade litigation case in Singapore, where Piper Alderman was directly involved. Working alongside Singapore-based lawyers, Piper Alderman advised on the litigation strategy. The work entailed the attendance of an all-day online mediation conference held in Singapore.  

Piper Alderman was well-positioned to advise on the litigation strategy because of its vast experience in litigation cases and trademark protection.
