Jonathan Colombo's practice covers all areas of trademark and copyright law. He has acted as counsel in Federal Court proceedings for Staples (in a passing off action) and McDonald’s (in the first Canadian case dealing with “reverse confusion”), and as lead counsel for Home Depot (in a counterfeiting case), Gap (in a trademark infringement case), Canada Goose (in a trade dress case), and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (in a case involving “official marks”).

He was also lead counsel for Estée Lauder in a successful Federal Court appeal of a trademark cancellation order, and for Hilton Worldwide Holding LLP in another successful Federal Court appeal of a trademark cancellation order (relating to the famous WALDORF-ASTORIA trademark).
