BGR Attorneys Mitchell, Cohen, and Katz Top List of “Legal Lions”
October 11th, 2016

Law360 today honored BGR lawyers Jeff Mitchell, Judith Cohen, and Brett Katz as “legal lions” of the week. The national online publication wrote that the BGR lawyers “topped” this week’s list based on their victory, on behalf of Tiffany & Co., in this month’s trademark infringement and counterfeiting trial against Costco Wholesale Corp. in federal court in Manhattan. Describing the proceeding as a “bitter damages trial,” the article noted that the jury handed Costco a total bill of $13.75 million due to its willful infringement of Tiffany’s rights. The amount of the judgment is likely to increase significantly after the trial based on the statutorily mandated trebling of damages and award of attorney’s fees.
