Comprehensive Intellectual Property and Marketing Audit
I begin every engagement with a thorough legal assessment of your marketing and branding collateral. From there, I provide you with a snapshot of your current intellectual property protection as well as options for expanding or strengthening your portfolio. I also identify key areas of risk and opportunities to mitigate liability with respect to your website, product packaging, marketing, labeling, and more. I conduct the audit with your long-term goals, risk tolerance, and company values in mind, all with the aim of maximizing options and opportunities for you.
Creative & Legal Partnership
I accompany businesses through all stages, from early growth to industry leadership, serving as a trusted legal guide, advisor, and advocate for your brand. Armed with the confidence that your rights are secure and that you’re leveraging the full value of your intellectual property, you’ll be empowered to make informed and strategic choices that make sense for your business
As your strategic legal partner, I help you understand how to select trademarks, develop a strong portfolio, enforce and leverage your intellectual property, and identify the risks and potential obstacles along the way. I also help you understand the legal landscape so you can make confident decisions about investments, acquisitions, or pursuing expansion opportunities—especially if you’re working in an emerging or changing industry.
Disagreements & Disputes
When you find yourself in need of legal counsel to resolve a dispute or represent your interests, my approach is always to first help you address the immediate issue and then position your business to mitigate risks and proactively improve your legal position in the future. Growth and success are much easier to achieve when your business and intellectual property are compliant and secure.
