About Anthony F. Lo Cicero
An engineer by training, Anthony Lo Cicero has represented companies in patent and trademark litigation involving product areas as diverse as e-commerce platforms, angular rate sensors, camcorders and textiles. He conducts due diligence of IP portfolios and provides strategic patent counseling to companies in a wide range of industries from recorded and published music to consumer electronics.
Very sophisticated technology competes with style and price as key aspects of the customer experience in the fashion industry. Mr. Lo Cicero represents some of the most prominent brick-and-mortar and on-line retailers in the country in patent disputes relating to the enterprise's e-commerce, mobile and point of sale systems. The retail industry regularly confronts patent assertions involving mobile platforms, electronic merchandise presentation, billing, marketing, inventory management and other features of the 21st century marketplace. Mr. Lo Cicero evaluates and responds to these assertions in a practical, business-oriented manner. For example, on behalf of one retailer, he obtained dismissals of several actions for little or no payment.
