Springut brings more than 25 years of experience in all aspects of IP litigation, prosecution, and counseling, including numerous patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret, and computer law matters. He litigates and prosecutes patents in the scientific disciplines, including electrical and electronic systems, computer hardware and software, and business systems, drawing on his early experience at Bell Laboratories, where he developed computer hardware and software systems. He also has earned a reputation as one of the country’s most skilled litigators of trademark, counterfeiting, and gray goods cases, representing the world’s top luxury brands and international fashion houses such as Gucci, Guess?, and several Richemont brands.
“Milton is one of the most influential IP rights lawyers in the country. His ability to help companies of all sizes develop their intellectual property — and protect those rights against misappropriation and infringement — will be a tremendous boon to our clients,” said Elizabeth A. Corradino, Chair of the Entertainment & Media, Technology and Intellectual Property practice groups.
Springut will continue to advise Fortune 500 companies, mid-market and internet start-ups across multiple industries, with emphasis in patent litigation, fashion and luxury goods, and technology and media rights. He is also well versed in the challenging process of obtaining product trade dress rights, having secured and litigated these rights for various iconic luxury goods products.
“Given its established midmarket presence across multiple disciplines and industries, Moses & Singer is the perfect fit for me at the right time,” said Springut. “I’m eager to work with my new talented colleagues in helping clients navigate evolving IP issues, particularly those concerning new online platforms, which significantly impact the value of their brands.”
Springut led his own IP boutique, Springut Law, since 2013 and was previously a name partner at Kalow & Springut from 1996. Outside of his busy practice, he has served as past board member and IP counsel for the American Foundation for the Blind, which he continues to represent pro bono on various matters.
