Partner, Trademarks and Licensing
A combination of entrepreneurial spirit and desire to be innovative led me to open my law firm; hard work and my passion for meeting and helping people have ensured the successful growth of our firm. Owning a legal firm has challenged me to become a proficient lawyer as well as a savvy business woman. As a business owner I have gained experience in all areas of business development including: strategic planning, branding and marketing, team leadership, public relations, crisis management, mentorship and operations. Prior to establishing this firm I was an associate at Miller Thomson LLP. I have assisted clients with all aspects of their IP rights. My clients include: local businesses, online businesses, international corporations, license owners, retailers, restauranteurs, mompreneurs, brand owners, investors, advertisers, charities and other public and private entities. I speak at seminars and conferences for clients, referral sources, investors and international associates and professionals as well as guest blog for various industry websites. Some aspects of my legal expertise include trade-mark and copyright matters, pre-clearance of trade-marks, trade names and domain names, preparing, filing and processing of trade-mark and copyright applications, representing clients in trade-mark opposition and cancellation proceedings and trade-mark and copyright litigation. As an entrepreneurial lawyer I have leveraged a unique combination of legal knowledge and business acumen to fuel success. I sincerely love what I do, but it’s the people I meet every day that fuel my passion for intellectual property law.
