I represent clients in complex business, commercial, intellectual property matters. My practice emphasizes the development of effective strategies for trademark and copyright protection, enforcement, licensing, and dispute resolution (including practice before the USPTO and TTAB). Areas of focus also include complex contractual and commercial matters, website protection, social media, privacy regulations, trade secrets, and disputes among co-owners of businesses.
Favorites of mine to work with are companies in the technology, food and beverage, apparel, footwear, accessories, marketing, advertising, consulting, and design industries.
A veteran of the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division, I especially enjoy working with businesses owned by veterans, military spouses, active duty service members, and others focused on the military community.
Prior to joining Fortis LLP as a Partner, I was a Shareholder with a boutique firm focusing on the intellectual property needs of businesses in the apparel, footwear, and accessories industries, particularly those based in Southern California and Australia.
