Attorneys Tracy Zurzolo Quinn, Bradley Hancock and Amy McVeigh were mentioned in a Law360 article recapping a recent decision to toss a trademark lawsuit against Kraft Heinz over its mayonnaise-ketchup spread called "Mayochup."
In January 2019, a Louisiana sauce maker sued the company in a reverse confusion claim, accusing Kraft Heinz of overwhelming his small "Metchup" brand whose name had already been registered as a federal trademark. However, the presiding judge in the case found that the sauce maker had not registered the trademark in Louisiana and had only sold 34 bottles of it in a hotel reception area, effectively abandoning the trademark by not using it in commerce.
The Holland & Knight team representing Kraft Heinz, spearheaded by Ms. Quinn, prevailed in their request for summary judgment, and the claims against the company were dismissed with prejudice.
