NEWS FROM OSTROLENK, FABER, GERB & SOFFEN, LLP
May 2004

Douglas A. Miro successfully secured an emergency ex parte seizure order from the Southern District of New York on behalf of an Ostrolenk client that is a leading manufacturer of handbags and other accessories. The seizure order was attained in only four days. Ostrolenk executed the ex parte seizure of thousands of counterfeit handbags, as well as documents and computer records from a Lower Manhattan store on the same day that the seizure order was signed, before the counterfeit merchandise could be distributed to other retailers. Ostrolenk├Ľs seizure saved the client immeasurable time and money in tracking down individual sellers as well as in shutting down a major distributor of counterfeit merchandise in New York City.

Douglas A. Miro, Partner, has been named Co Chair for the Trade Secret Committee of the Intellectual Property Section of the New York State Bar Association.
