How did Phillips Crab go from local sensation to global competitor?
Phillips Foods is clawing its way to the top of the seafood industry.
Sterne Kessler worked with Phillips Foods to obtain a patent and register a trademark for its new product, the Culinary CrabTM.
When Phillips Foods developed a less expensive alternative to a jumbo lump of crab meat, a formed lump of crab, they knew competitors would soon realize the demand in the market for such a product. Immediately, Phillips Foods called upon Sterne Kessler to protect its process and product as valuable assets. We searched and reviewed the closest prior art to craft the broadest possible patent protection for the method of manufacturing a formed lump of crab meat. We also worked with Phillips Foods to register the catchy trademark of Culinary CrabTM for the product.
