Today, the international law firm Crowell & Moring LLP announced the launch of its new TLD (Top-Level Domain) and Domain Name practice.

As the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) prepares for the 2011 introduction of what may be the most significant extension of the domain name system since the introduction of .com, the TLD and Domain Name practice will counsel brand owners about strategies for protecting and enhancing their brands and preventing infringement in this new and uncertain online environment, including whether and how to seek registration of new generic top-level domains (gTLDs).

Brussels-based partner Flip Petillion and Washington, DC-based partner John I. Stewart, Jr. will co lead the practice, which is comprised of a comprehensive team of intellectual property, Internet law, and dispute resolution lawyers.

In the press release at the firm’s website, Stewart was quoted as saying: “The introduction of generic top-level domains offers a wealth of opportunities, but it also presents great challenges, as companies and operators around the world seek to use the new regime to their advantage. Our practice leverages the firm’s extensive experience to counsel our clients through all phases of the gTLD process, from initial assessment to application to launch. We are uniquely placed to help clients as they make strategic decisions, structure agreements, and resolve any disputes as they negotiate their way through the process.”

To further bolster the practice, Crowell & Moring has brought on new Brussels-based counsel Bart Lieben, who offers extensive experience in international commercial law, with a particular focus on intellectual property, telecommunications, media, and technology law.

Crowell & Moring’s international team of lawyers are engaged in counseling, transactional, and contracting work on intellectual property, policy, strategy and liability issues as clients develop and evolve their Internet brand presence, and can handle all aspects of litigation related to new gTLD applications.

In addition to Lieben, the Brussels office also gained two new associates, Sarah van den Brande and Christian Dekoninck, who will practice in the Intellectual Property Group and the TLD and Domain Name practice.

The firm invites all brand owners to attend a live webinar, “ICANN’s New gTLD Program: Considerations for Brand Owners,” on October 27, 2010 at 12:00 pm EDT. The webinar will feature Crowell & Moring Intellectual Property and Dispute Resolution lawyers who will highlight the new ICANN process and offer insight on the opportunities and challenges involved in securing a generic top-level domain name.
