I am a shareholder and practice group leader at Gordon Silver's Intellectual Property and Entertainment and Sports practice groups. I practice primarily in the areas of domestic and international trademark and copyright prosecution, licensing and enforcement. I also resolves trademark, copyright, and domain name disputes, including the resolution of disputes over contested trademarks before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, appeals before the Copyright Office and enforcing clients’ intellectual property rights on the Internet.
In addition to my prosecution practice, I draft and negotiate a variety of agreements in the intellectual property and entertainment fields such as assignments, licenses, rights of publicity agreements, non-disclosure agreements, personal management agreements and work for hire agreements, including recording, publishing and production agreements.
Prior to joining the firm, I was Associate General Counsel for Agassi Enterprises and Alliance Sports Management (now known as Prism), where I negotiated, drafted licensing and endorsement agreements, management agreements, and player tournament agreements for NBA and ATP players and IRL drivers. She was also Corporate Counsel for Sunbelt Communications, where she handled all corporate and intellectual property matters for several NBC and FOX affiliates throughout the United States.
