Promptly filing for intellectual property protection and having the agreements associated with them reviewed by an attorney, can help people avoid suffering these kinds of losses and ending up in court.

The Suffolk-County based law firm, Intellectulaw, the law offices of P.B. Tufariello, P.C., recently won an appeal before the Appellate Division-Second Department of the New York State, securing a new trial for a client who lost his business after his partners allegedly violated a non-compete clause in their business agreement.
Judges Fisher, Ritter, Florio and Carni, of The Supreme Court of the State of New York Appellate Division: Second Judicial Department ordered a new trial after Panagiota Betty Tufariello, Esq. argued the appeal on behalf of her client, Morris Sendor et al. (Morris Sendor et al. v. Matthew Chervin et al.).
Tufariello, founder of Intellectulaw, said this case underscores her firm's commitment their clients and the development of their business through the proper management of their intellectual property portfolio and the right litigation strategy.
"In this particular case, our client did not have an attorney draft the original non-compete agreement. His business was destroyed by unfair competition as a result of an unclear and incomplete clause, in the agreement," Tufariello said. "Promptly filing for intellectual property protection and having the agreements associated with them reviewed by an attorney, can help people avoid suffering these kinds of losses and ending up in court."

"Litigation represents a significant commitment of time, energy, and dedication," she said. "We take the time to meet individually with every client before we formulate a litigation strategy."
