I offer intellectual property services with an emphasis on trademarks, copyright, internet law, and related areas of business law. In addition, I devote a significant portion of my time to unfair completion and false advertising litigation including consumer protection claims. As an advocate I bring a commitment to the broader concepts of justice and fairness, and continue to take targeted cases and issues impacting societal and consumer protections. And, I handle the daily legal issues with the same perspective; the concepts of justice and fairness are foundational rather than theoretical. When I practice trademark law, I keep in mind its goals of protecting consumers and promoting fair, responsible competition. As a client, you can expect my work to reflect these deeply rooted convictions, and a genuine commitment to my clients.
Clients across the United States benefit from an accessible, affordable, counselor at law approach to their trademark, business, and intellectual property strategies. In addition, my clients benefit from a collaborative network of attorneys who provide international support to Lewis Kent clients conducting business on a global scale.
As part of my commitment to law and public education, I am enthusiastically involved in the American Bar Association. Currently, I chair an actively engaged ABA/IPL trademark committee. I am also an elected fellow of the American Bar Foundation. For more about my background and work with the trademark division of the American Bar Association, please visit my LinkedIn profile.
