Minneapolis attorney Allen W. Hinderaker, of Merchant & Gould, P.C., was inducted into the Litigation Counsel of America at the LCA's Spring Conference and Induction of Fellows in New York.
Litigation is the exclusive focus of Allen's practice, representing clients in court, before administrative tribunals, and in private arbitration. Allen is privileged to work with clients on important matters, and understands that case strategies, tactics and outcomes must align with business objectives: the litigation and the management of the litigation must serve the client's business requirements. Allen's litigation practice is limited to patent infringement, trademark and trade dress infringement, including contested cases before the TTAB, commercial contract and licensing disputes, trade secret misappropriation and claims of unfair competition. Allen is currently the Chair of Merchant & Gould's litigation practice group.
