Services

There are a number of ways I can help:

Trademark

Your brand is critical to your business, so developing it, managing it, and protecting it are crucial. Whether you're a startup or a mature business with an existing trademark portfolio, I can help. I provide a number of trademark-related services:

  • Trademark selection
  • Clearance ("knockout") searching
  • State and federal registration
  • Proper use and licensing
  • Enforcement

Copyright

Your creative work also deserves protection. I prepare copyright registrations and licensing agreements. I also help you enforce your registered copyrights, and I help you avoid disputes by advising on fair use. 

Business

Starting and running a business is exciting. It can also be overwhelming: there are financial needs to attend to, products and services to provide, and hundreds of game time decisions to make. There are also a variety of legal concerns -- choice of entity, financing, and employer obligations, to name a few. I help you navigate the laws and regulations that affect your business so you can get back to doing what you do best: running it! I assist businesses of all ages and at all stages. Among the business services I provide are:

  • Entity selection
  • Entity formation and maintenance
  • Preparing governing documents (bylaws, operating agreements, partnership agreements, etc.)
  • Contract drafting and negotiation

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you need help with any of these issues. You can also check out my Answers on Avvo for a flavor of the types of issues I handle.
