Plaintiff Victory: Six-Figure Trademark Litigation Settlement Obtained By Call & Jensen

After three years of contentious litigation regarding the use of the name “Benchmark,” and just weeks before trial, Scott Shaw, Deborah Gubernick and Samuel Brooks of Call & Jensen obtained a favorable settlement on behalf of their client, Benchmark Transitions. Benchmark Transitions brought claims for trademark infringement in the Southern District of California against a competitor, Launchworks Life Services, which had started using the name “Benchmark Recovery Center.” Among other terms in the non-confidential settlement, Launchworks Life Services is required to pay Benchmark Transitions $400,000 and cease from using the term “Benchmark” as a trademark.
