Ala. 1983) The firm successfully represented Arthur Young, Inc., a national “big Eight” accounting firm that was also engaged in the business of executive search and recruitment, in this declaratory judgment filed against it by an executive search firm whose president and sole shareholder was named Arthur Young. We filed a counterclaim seeking a declaration that plaintiff’s use of “Arthur Young” infringed as well as diluted our client’s trademark rights under federal and Alabama law. After a bench trial, the court entered a judgment and permanent injunction in favor of our client.
