Given the critical importance of a company?s intellectual property assets, I provide advice and guidance regarding the development of branding strategies as well as their clearance and prosecution to registration in the United States and throughout the world.
I manage and maintain our clients? worldwide intellectual property portfolios and police the marketplace to protect against infringements and counterfeiting. Other skill areas include licensing and merchandising agreements, due diligence with mergers and acquisitions, unfair competition law, including comparative and false advertising, country of origin issues, United States and foreign customs regulations, registrations and seizures and the management and oversight of domain name portfolios.
With the ever-changing landscape of the Internet, social networking and multimedia raising new areas of concern to our clients and their brands, we have navigated these challenges through successful cyber squatting and domain name dispute resolution proceedings and with active and creative enforcement tactics.
