District court grants Nike’s request for preliminary injunction in case against Chinese footwear manufacturer

On February 17, 2016, Banner & Witcoff filed suit on behalf of client Nike, Inc., against Chinese footwear manufacturer Fujian Bestwinn for selling numerous models of shoes that infringe at least 20 of Nike’s design patents.

On the day Nike filed suit, the Court granted Nike’s request for a temporary restraining order and a seizure order. Nike executed the seizure order at a trade show and obtained additional evidence of Fuijan Bestwinn’s infringements. Thereafter, the Court granted Nike’s request for a preliminary injunction.

Nike is represented by Banner & Witcoff attorneys Christopher J. Renk, Erik S. Maurer, Michael J. Harris and Aaron Bowling.
