Ronald Coleman – Archer & Greiner, PC

Practice/Organization Description

I try civil cases in all courts and ADR venues and do related counseling, focusing on trademarks, copyrights and other torts of competition, especially with respect to the use of intellectual property on the Internet and technology. I maintain my practice in our firm's New York City and Hackensack, New Jersey offices; Archer also has offices in Philadelphia; Haddonfield, Princeton, Flemington and Red Bank, New Jersey; and Wilmington, Delaware.

I have represented clients of every size in state and federal courts, arbitrations and mediations throughout the country in a wide variety of commercial litigation and other matters, including contract disputes, distributorship litigation, trademark and unfair competition, trademark counterfeiting, business tort claims, toxic tort and insurance coverage litigation, discrimination and wrongful discharge cases, copyright infringement claims, trade secret, restrictive covenant and real estate litigation.

My litigation experience runs the gamut from pretrial investigation and early dispute resolution through every aspect of bench and jury trials as well as appeals. I have developed a reputation for my representation of clients in connection with online business and specifically the use of intellectual property on the Internet. My colleagues at Archer are equipped to deliver the quality, sophistication and depth of big-firm litigation in a client-friendly, economically rational package.

My blog about copyright, trademark and related issues, LIKELIHOOD OF CONFUSION, was recognized by the ABA Journal as one of the top 100 law-related blogs in the country in its first-ever listing in 2007. I wrote the first article on Internet law in that magazine (1995) as well as the various scholarly articles and book contributions on law and litigation shown in my listing here.
