Company posts job description for a California-licensed litigator with IP experience.
I wrote earlier today about one of Michael Gleissner’s firms backing down from its challenge to a trademark application filed by Expensify. Expensify alleged in its response to the trademark objection that Gleissner (and his lawyer) committed fraud to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
Gleissner’s firms have been involved in a number of questionable intellectual property disputes and filings. And an intellectual property manager for his company Bigfoot previously claimed on his LinkedIn profile to be involved with “manipulation of TMs and common law marks to achieve UDRP “reverse domain name hijacking”.
Want to join this winning team? Well, here’s your chance if you are admitted to the California bar and are willing to pay your own way to relocate for a contract gig in New York or Hong Kong.
Bigfoot is looking for an “aggressive” litigator, according to a job posting on Indeed.
Candidates must have a minimum of 2 years of litigation experience, with a concrete understanding of State and Federal Court procedure, with a preference for intellectual property experience, i.e. copyright and trademarks (TTAB proceedings, infringement, UDRP), entertainment and labor law.
This trademark train apparently has no plan to slow down.
