As counsel for Southern California surf-apparel giant RVCA Corporation, Thomas Vogele & Associates was part of the legal team that represented RVCA in the sale to Billabong International Ltd. TVA also personally managed the registration and transfer of RVCA’s significant worldwide intellectual property, including recovering several trademarks that had been pirated in several Asian countries.

TVA also successfully represented RVCA in a variety of litigation and transactional situations, all of which required his unique blend of business savvy and expertise, legal skills and creative problem solving, including several large commercial disputes involving trademark infringement, breach of contract and wrongful termination/age and gender discrimination claims by a former manager.  RVCA was the prevailing party in each of these disputes and TVA attorneys negotiated settlements worth more than $1 million in total.

“Tom [Vogele] is one of the people I rely on to help me make decisions about the direction of my business. I consider him a key part of my management team.”
