Nail Salon sue by Coach Handbag for selling counterfeit.

1 Answers. Asked on Sep 25th, 2014 on Intellectual Property - Connecticut
More details to this question:
I have a nail salon and I am being sue by Coach Handbag for selling counterfeit handbag. We bought the handbags from the local flea market and sold no more than 3 items. I contacted the lawyer from Coach directly and they said to settle this, they want $50k. We're a new small business and our cash flow is $2000 so I offered everything in our operating account which is $2,000. Their lawyer asked for my tax return and a couple days later asked for my lease to the salon. I don't know what is going to happen next. Is there any advice on what I should do next since I can not afford a lawyer.

Try the folks at They will try to help you get legal assistance for your issue at a price you can afford.

Every state has legal assistance programs that provide low cost legal resources for folks that cannot afford the fees most attorneys charge. The counsel tend to be younger and seeking to develop experience.

Good luck,

Intellectual Property
The legal system recognizes the rights of people and companies that invent and create unique works, granting them ownership of those tangible and intangible assets through a number of intellectual property laws. Intellection property, or IP, includes patents, trademarks, copyright, trade dress and trade secrets. Intellectual property attorneys work with businesses and individuals (including inventors, writers, composers, artists and designers) to help protect these intellectual assets. IP lawyers and law firms can assist with taking initial steps to protect assets, while also working with clients to license items and to protect assets that are plagiarized, infringed and/or misappropriated.
