Lauren counsels clients on a broad range of IP issues including trademark, copyright and general branding strategy. She provides knowledgeable guidance on strategic approaches to implementing, registering, maintaining and protecting brands. Lauren also has significant brand enforcement experience, in both offensive and defensive positions.
As a senior associate, I have a vast amount of experience in IP law, as well as a unique perspective on brand strategy and enforcement from my previous experience as in-house corporate and intellectual property counsel at an international casino gaming company.
I guide clients through the selection and clearance of new brands as well as counsel them on the best practices for protecting growing and longstanding brands. A significant portion of my practice focuses on guiding offensive trademark enforcement strategy and defending against enforcement claims, both of which are important in protecting the strength of my clients’ brands and the significant investments in their IP.
My extensive knowledge and experience in IP has also provided me with a basis for conducting seminars and educational sessions on the basics of IP law and strategy for both in-house attorneys and corporate executives.
Social media is changing the way companies build and enforce their brands. It is also quickly increasing the potential for infringement. As a result, our Trademark practice continues to change, and I look forward to seeing how trademark law catches up over the next few years.
