I am a partner in Gibney's Intellectual Property Practice Group. I focus primarily in trademark and copyright protection and enforcement. I also practice in the areas of computers & new media, corporate and sports law.
I have successfully litigated scores of trademark counterfeiting and copyright infringement cases, as well as civil and administrative proceedings under the UDRP, DMCA and ACPA. I also counsel clients in the luxury goods, fashion, sports and entertainment industries in developing nationwide programs to protect and enforce intellectual property rights. In furthering that goal, I advise federal, state and local law enforcement agencies on procedures to combat the counterfeiting of trademarked goods, as well as training members of these agencies as an expert in the identification of counterfeit merchandise.
I am the co-founder of Gibney’s Online Brand Protection Group and supervise a staff devoted exclusively to protecting and enforcing clients’ rights on the World Wide Web. I also have extensive experience drafting and negotiating Website Development and Hosting Agreements and advise clients on matters relating to new technology, computers and the Internet. I am also experienced in business planning and financing, and have negotiated licensing and distribution agreements with teams in several professional sports.
