A Full-Service Law Firm

Russ August & Kabat provides refined and economically efficient legal services. We understand that legal matters come in different sizes. We are sensitive to our clients’ needs.

  • Our intellectual property practice emphasizes plaintiff’s patent infringement litigation, as well as trademark, copyright, trade secret, unfair competition and related litigation. The firm also provides trademark, copyright and patent prosecution and counseling.
  • Our litigation and trial practice includes sophisticated experience in trademark, patent, copyright and other intellectual property as well as commercial, entertainment, partnership, real estate, securities, antitrust and general business litigation. While negotiation and rational business determinations should, and often do, resolve most disputes, we have an advantage. Our lawyers try cases. That trial experience provides negotiating leverage that translates into outstanding results.
  • Our corporate and finance practice services a variety of sophisticated corporate needs including mergers and acquisitions, representation of non-public companies.
  • Our real estate practice includes all transactional, regulatory and litigation aspects for the acquisition, development, ownership, management, construction, use and financing of real property.
  • Our media and entertainment practice focuses on traditional and “new” media to represent artists, producers, and content providers of all varieties, to protect their rights across all platforms.
  • Our garment and textile practice incorporates all aspects of retail sales, manufacturing and distribution, licensing, copyright, trademark, and financing issues.

Russ August & Kabat’s practice is both local and national. While our practice is Los Angeles-based, we are proud to represent our local, national and international clients on challenging, interesting, and cutting-edge legal matters from coast-to-coast.
