Contemporary home office and home entertainment products company Z-Line Designs announced that it will aggressively defend itself against the latest patent infringement lawsuit filed by Whalen Furniture Manufacturing, Inc.

Z-Line asserts that it does not infringe any Whalen patent. Z-Line Designs is represented by its long-time counsel Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP, who are national patent litigation experts. In the past five years, Kilpatrick Townsend has successfully defended several hundred clients against claims of patent infringement and has been repeatedly recognized as one of the nation's leading intellectual property law firms. It was recognized by Corporate Counsel Magazine in 2011 as one of the leading patent litigation firms in the U.S. and as the largest intellectual property litigation firm in the U.S. by The Best Lawyers In America® 2012.

Jim Sexton, CEO of Z-Line Designs stated, “As a leading furniture designer and manufacturer, Z-Line respects intellectual property rights and takes care to avoid infringements. Z-Line itself has a strong intellectual property portfolio that it has developed over many years. Z-Line assures their customers and partners that Z-Line stands behind and is fully committed to its products and that they should not be misled by any claims from Whalen representatives regarding Z-Line’s products or its ability to supply those products. There will be no change or impact on the way Z-Line sells and supports their product lines. Z-Line intends to defend this new lawsuit vigorously and believes it has strong and meritorious positions that will prevail.”
