Bob’s consumer practice focuses on the defense of companies accused of violating consumer protection statutes in class actions and regulatory proceedings. In a multidistrict litigation that has been widely cited to support dismissal of claims by consumers who allege that webpage offers are deceptive, Bob obtained dismissal of a putative class action as a matter of law based on the court’s finding that consumers are charged with knowledge they would glean from reading the disclosures, whether or not they read them, and in this case a reasonable consumer who read the disclosures would have understood them.
Bob also has substantial experience in prosecuting and defending trademark, trade dress, design patent and licensing claims, mostly in the footwear and fashion industry, in representing franchisors in disputes with franchisees, and in handling general commercial litigation.
