My interest in intellectual property started when I was studying Business Administration / Marketing at the University of New Hampshire. I was fascinated by the intersection of a brand with a product or service — the way businesses communicate a wealth of information about their product, service, or company with one word, a slogan, or a simple image. The importance of brands in our society is undeniable and whether the reputation of the brand is good or bad, brands are the connectors (or disconnectors) between people and product.
Knowing that intellectual property would be my focus, I attended law school at one of the top 10 U.S. law schools for the study of intellectual property law, Franklin Pierce Law Center (Concord, NH). During law school, I had the opportunity to work for a preeminent intellectual property boutique law firm in Coral Gables, Florida. It was then that I fell in love with the diversity, culture, and weather of South Florida and stayed.
I have been practicing exclusively in the area of intellectual property for more than fifteen (15) years and have been a Florida Board-Certified Attorney specializing in the area of Intellectual Property since 2008.
My practice involves most aspects of intellectual property focusing on trademarks, domain names, and copyrights and specifically, international trademark portfolio counseling and management, trademark clearance, trademark and copyright prosecution, maintenance and intellectual property enforcement.
I have extensive experience assisting clients with the creation of trademark and branding strategies and developing action plans to maximize value and protection – domestically and internationally. I also regularly negotiate and prepare intellectual property licenses, releases, contractor agreements, marketing agreements, vendor agreements, confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements, and other agreements relating to intellectual property issues.
My practice also includes significant work litigating trademark, copyright, unfair competition, and domain name disputes in federal court, the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and through Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy proceedings.
Beyond my career, my life centers around my two energetic, amazing boys. When not assisting my clients, I love to spend my time adventuring with my kids (snowboarding, sightseeing, hiking, or biking), going to music festivals and concerts, enjoying the performing arts, and enjoying the company of my family and friends.
