Sydney Pritchett is an associate in the Intellectual Property practice group and a member of the Fashion Law, Entertainment, Arts and Cultural Institutions and Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) teams. She counsels and represents organizations in litigation, mediation and domestic arbitration.
I help clients in the fashion and entertainment industries prepare for and navigate matters involving trademarks, copyrights, rights of publicity, trade secrets, bankruptcy and contract disputes. I counsel clients on the risks and advantages that come with various litigation strategies, keeping in mind the varying priorities across all industries and fields.
I provide transactional assistance to brands to help navigate the uncertain legal framework and use the legal structure to achieve their goals. I strategically counsel clients on how contract enforcement and intellectual property protection will affect their overall business. I especially work with clients in the fashion and entertainment space, as they create deals to monetize and promote their brands.
As the internet and social media lead to increased and easier sharing, more and more intellectual property is available online. Clients will need to think ahead about how to use this increased publicity to their advantage, while still protecting their intellectual property.
