Memphis Daily News
By Rebekah Hearn

Grady M. Garrison, of counsel at Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz PC, recently was appointed to serve as co-chair of the Intellectual Property Litigation Subcommittee for the American Bar Association Litigation Section.

Garrison concentrates his practice in intellectual property and franchise law. He has experience in trademark, copyright, franchising, antitrust and trade regulation issues, as well as related licensing, litigation and transactional matters.

Garrison has represented large companies in breach of contract cases and infringement actions, and has authored and co-authored works on intellectual property law.

Recently, Garrison moderated an ABA IP Roundtable discussion focusing on the patentability of genes as the American Civil Liberties Union recently launched a legal challenge to several breast gene patents. In late February, Garrison also will lead a session of The Brand Council, one of which he also held in November.

Garrison is a member of the Memphis, Tennessee, American and International bar associations, the Tennessee Intellectual Property Law Association and the Memphis Area Franchise Association.

He has been listed in The Best Lawyers in America®, Mid-South Super Lawyers and Business Tennessee magazine’s 150 Best Lawyers, and worked as adjunct professor in franchise law.

Q: Your practice is a mix of transactional and litigation matters. Do you tend to do more transactional or litigation work? What is one of the most difficult aspects of litigating intellectual property law?

This type of litigation often is highly contentious and expensive.
