Games litigation experts top leading lawyers list

Ace attorneys recognised for work with Ubisoft, Gameloft and others

Greenberg Glusker has again been ranked as one of the leading law firms in the U.S., following a number of high profile videogame related cases.

For the fourth consecutive year, the firm's entertainment litigation practise was ranked in "Band 1, Top Ranked" in the 2010 edition of Chambers USA America's Leading Lawyers for Business.

The firm was noted for its A-list clientele - which includes Tom Cruise, Jerry Bruckheimer, Hans Zimmer and The Weinstein Company - as well as its expertise in copyright, trademark, and rights litigation and licensing disputes.

As such the company has ended up representing a number of videogame companies, including Ubisoft in a $13 million judgement against MGA concerning the Bratz dolls.

The firm also helped the French publisher to obtain the videogame rights to the Tom Clancy brand.

A favourable settlement for mobile publisher Gameloft was won in a copyright and trademark dispute brought by Activision, in connection with the Guitar Hero series.

Greenberg Glusker also represented Call of Duty: Finest Hour developer Spark Unlimited in a breach of contract and fraud claim against Activision, as well as Blacksite developer Savage Entertainment in a similar dispute with Take-Two Interactive.

Additionally, Greenberg Glusker was able to win 100 per cent of the damages sought by Crave Entertainment in a dispute against developer Visiware Entertainment.
