Clients Kiss Nail Products, Inc.

Jones Day successfully represented Kiss Nail Products, Inc. in an action for patent infringement and breach of contract against Pretty Woman, LLC and its founder and CEO, John Manzione, relating to artificial nail products. In November 2016, the Court entered a consent judgment that Pretty Woman infringed and actively induced others to infringe Kiss Products' U.S. Patent No. 6,354,304, and that the patent is valid and enforceable. Kiss Products is a leader in artificial nails and other cutting-edge beauty products.  The contract claim related to the settlement of a prior lawsuit between the parties involving the same patent.
