NEW YORK, Nov. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SkyBridge Capital ("SkyBridge"), a global investment management firm and the owner of the registered trademarks SKYBRIDGE and SKYBRIDGE CAPITAL, announced today the entry by the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division, of a Stipulated Consent Final Judgment and Order for Permanent Injunction and other Equitable Relief ("Injunction") against SkyBridge Wealth Management LLC and John E. Harmon, individually (collectively "SkyBridge Wealth ") in an action filed by SkyBridge in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division, asserting claims of trademark infringement, unfair competition, dilution and unjust enrichment.

The Injunction issued by the Court prohibits SkyBridge Wealth from continuing to use the Defendants' mark SkyBridge Wealth Management and any other SkyBridge trademarks including SKYBRIDGE, SKYBRIDGE CAPITAL and SALT SKYBRIDGE ALTERNATIVES CONFERENCE & Bridge Design.  In addition, the Consent Injunction requires, inter alia, that the domain names www.skybridgewealthmanagement.com and www.skybridgewealthmanagement.net to be transferred to SkyBridge.          

Anthony Scaramucci, Founder and Co-Managing Partner of SkyBridge stated that "SkyBridge has worked diligently to build the SKYBRIDGE brand in the financial industry to identify only SkyBridge.  Any unauthorized use of SKYBRIDGE in connection with financial products and services threatens to erode the goodwill that SkyBridge has rightfully earned and will likely confuse those in the financial sector.  For this reason, SkyBridge has and will continue to aggressively enforce its rights in the SKYBRIDGE name and brand."

SkyBridge is represented by Laura Goldbard George, Jeffrey Mann and Madelon Witte of Stroock & Stroock & Lavan, LLP in New York, New York.
