Grimes LLC Founder Chuck Grimes’ Career Featured In The Connecticut Law Tribune

A recent issue of The Connecticut Law Tribune featured an in-depth look at the distinctive and exciting career of Grimes LLC’s founder and Managing Partner, Chuck Grimes.

The article, which appeared on July 15, 2014, highlights Chuck’s “40-plus-year career in IP law” and notes that he “has carved out a niche for himself, specializing in character licensing at his four-lawyer boutique with offices in Connecticut, Manhattan and Naples, Fla.” During his career, Chuck has worked with some of biggest and most well-recognized names and characters in intellectual property and entertainment, including characters from “Star Trek” and the beloved characters Archie, Betty and Veronica from Archie Comic Publications, along with numerous others.

The article also touches upon Chuck’s extensive work fighting counterfeiters “to stop sales of phony Montecristo, H. Upmann and Romeo Y Julieta cigars” and a recent battle involving the rights to the J. GEILS BAND trademark and the right to use Mr. Geils’ name.

In addition to the examples provided in the article, Chuck’s career has involved a virtual “Who’s Who” of the intellectual property and entertainment worlds (including working with clients such as Jessica Simpson, Scholastic and many others) that could undoubtedly fill an entire autobiography.
