No Better Copyright Attorney in New York than Josh Bressler
Josh Bressler has pursued a number of copyright infringement claims for me against parties ranging from local businesses to global media companies. Josh is one of the smartest, most insightful and tenacious attorneys I have worked with. He has a firm grasp of the law and understands what it takes to drive a claim towards an expeditious and successful resolution. He also takes it on as a priority to fully explain the options available to his clients and maintains a high level of transparency throughout the process. I would recommend Bressler to anyone who is in need of counsel to represent them in a copyright infringement claim.
