How a baby goods maker won a ‘rare’ US injunction

Maria Sbytova /

In a series in which attorneys explore notable brand victories, Shamita Etienne-Cummings of Allen & Overy outlines her team’s route to success in Wonderland’s child car seat patent dispute.

Baby goods manufacturer Wonderland Group—the designer and manufacturer of Graco, Nuna and Joie child car seats—has managed an unusual feat by securing a US injunction against a competitor.

The development comes after a Delaware jury found in January that Ohio-based Evenflo had infringed a trio of patents owned by the Switzerland-based baby goods manufacturer.

Earlier this month, the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit issued an order permanently barring Evenflo from selling its signature car seats—the EveryKid, EveryFit and All4One car seats—in the US.
