Rome & Associates is a full-service law firm that vigorously represents our clients in a spectrum of niche matters, including intellectual property law, electronic payment processing, domain name, art and business law. We take on high-risk, complex litigation and transactional matters with skill and enthusiasm, protecting our clients’ assets and guiding them to make informed business decisions.
We have vast experience working with major players in the visual arts, technology and finance sectors in the U.S. and abroad. Clients include well-known tech companies, such as Namecheap, XYZ, LLC, CentralNic and others. In the art world, we represent domestic and international galleries and collectors, including Galerie Michael and Opera Gallery.
In multifaceted international payment processing cases, our attorneys have successfully established U.S. jurisdiction over foreign banks located in the Philippines, St. Kitts, Canada and other countries. We have also tried payment processing disputes, including obtaining a $2.4 million verdict for clients in a fraud and breach of oral agreement matter in the payment processing space. In the domain space, we represent registrars and registries in cutting-edge legal claims and have established new law regarding interpretation of ICANN agreements, DMCA immunities and CDA immunities. We regularly prosecute and defend actions concerning domain names, both in federal courts and before arbitration panels. In art matters, we have resolved claims related to a prominent Warhol, a notable Picasso and a litany of other contests involving world-renowned works. In a widely covered art forgery case, we successfully obtained an $800,000 judgment against a dealer who sold fraudulent art and are now pursuing a case against his counsel.
Beyond legal acumen, our attorneys offer real-world business experience as former business consultants and start-up CEOs. Founder Eugene Rome studied art history at La Sorbonne, giving him a deep understanding of the art world and the legal issues related to it.
