Who We Help
At Arthur R. Lehman, LLC, we represent individuals, businesses, inventors, and entrepreneurs in intellectual property disputes.

If you are facing a dispute involving trademarks, copyrights, or trade dress, we can help.
In Odegard, Inc. v. Costikyan Classic Carpets, we represented Odegard, Inc. a leading designer and manufacturer of hand-knotted Tibetan rugs, against Costikyan, a competitor, on claims that Costikyan had produced Tibetan rug designs that infringed the Odegard copyrights. After trial in U.S. District Court Costikyan was found to have infringed our client’s copyrights. The court awarded our client damages, a permanent injunction, and attorneys’ fees, and ordered that all of the infringing rugs be destroyed. (We were happy to facilitate the donation of the rugs to charity as an alternative to their destruction).
Intellectual property conflicts frequently arise in the employment contract litigation arena. Accordingly, we have gained experience prosecuting intellectual property rights through litigation concerning agreements barring competition by former employees and disclosure of trade secrets.
Trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets are important assets and often have significant value. Hiring an experienced intellectual property law attorney is your first step in protecting your valuable property. Contact a lawyer today to discuss your situation.
