Holland & Knight attorneys successfully defended CPK Media, founded by celebrity chef Christopher Kimball, in a lawsuit claiming that he violated Milk Street Cafe Inc.'s trademark by opening a cafe named Milk Street Kitchen. The judge ruled that because there was little to no potential for overlap between each business' clients — Milk Street Cafe being a kosher cafe with a local focus and Milk Street Kitchen offering cooking lessons with a national reach and a large social media presence — the two named were unlikely to be confused, and so Milk Street Cafe failed demonstrate the trademark infringement would cause harm. CPK Media was represented by attorneys Christopher Iaquinto and Dawn Rudenko.
