Attorney devoted to establishing strong businesses through the development and protection of brands, content, and products. Trademark | Copyright | Internet Law
Introduction
I am an attorney with Barnes & Thornburg LLP where I am a member of our firm's Intellectual Property Department and the Internet and Technology Law Group. My practice is focused on growing the value of my clients' businesses by establishing and strengthening their foundations through the strategic development and protection of brands, content, products, and services.

I advise clients from start-ups to growth-focused multinational corporations on a broad range of legal matters, including intellectual property development, protection and enforcement, branding strategy, Internet, social media and domain name issues, infringement and anti-counterfeiting actions, trade dress and non-traditional trademarks, advertising and marketing, contracts, licensing, copyright, media, right of publicity, and unfair competition matters. 

I previously served as in-house counsel for an Intellectual Property investigations and consulting firm where I advised clients regarding complex anti-counterfeiting investigations and brand protection strategies. 

I am proud of my broad experience counseling clients regarding the development of Intellectual Property enforcement programs designed to address domestic, foreign and Internet-based infringement, while maximizing the value and growth potential of clients' brands around the world. I am also experienced in federal trademark and trade dress litigation, as well as in helping clients monetize Intellectual Property through the comprehensive development of trademark licensing programs.
