Vivek has also acted as local counsel in several cases in the Northern District of Illinois for firms around the United States.
Vivek has extensive experience handling copyright and trademark matters for several domestic and foreign businesses. In that regard, he has prosecuted and defended counterfeit cases, infringement matters, karaoke, ASCAP, and other cases arising under the Copyright and Lanham Acts. Vivek has also assisted clients in obtaining, protecting and enforcing trademarks, including conducting and reviewing searches and investigations for trademark clearance; preparing opinion letters; filing and prosecuting trademark applications; monitoring and policing the use of trademarks by third parties; and providing general trademark and domain name counseling. Vivek has also negotiated and structured the license or transfer of trademarks through license agreements and other corporate ventures.
Vivek routinely advises corporations from around the world on a variety of transactional matters that affect their business on a daily basis. He advises clients on the formation of general partnerships, joint ventures, limited partnerships and limited liability companies. In addition, Vivek has advised clients on forming international joint ventures, transferring partnership interests and dissolving partnerships. His approach to transactional law is an interdisciplinary one because Vivek believes that each corporate transaction has a potential effect on each and every component of a business’ organizational structure and operational potential. To that end, Vivek has also been extensively exposed to the areas of employment and real estate law as they typically apply to a company’s ongoing business. As a result he counsels his clients on employment agreements, consulting agreements, and other contracts that govern a company’s day to day affairs, including documents related to the startup of technology ventures.
