Ex Parte Seizure for Fun and Profit

AGG attorneys Stephen M. Dorvee and Devin H. Gordon authored an article titled “Ex Parte Seizure for Fun and Profit” published in the August 2011 edition of Intellectual Property Today (subscription may be required to view). The article examines the statutory basis underlying ex parte seizures and then addresses how to prepare for and make an application for a seizure. It then addresses the form of the seizure order and how to organize and implement an effective seizure. Finally, the article provides a brief overview of what happens after a seizure and what can happen if things go wrong.
