Partner William Golden is quoted in IP Law 360 regarding his successful representation of Bacardi.
An article titled, "Judge Cuts Pernod's 'Havana Club' Claims in Half," reports that U.S. District Judge Sue L. Robinson dismissed one of two claims Pernod Ricard USA LLC has asserted against Bacardi USA LLC.
Mr. Golden prevailed in the defendant's motion to dismiss the false advertising claim with respect to the "Havana Club" trademark. He stated that he is confident that the Delaware court will also rule in
favor of Bacardi with respect to the origin of its Havana Club rum.
