What I do:
I assist startup and tech companies with intellectual property issues, mainly around trademark (both domestic and international), but also including copyright, domain names, privacy/publicity rights and advertising.
What my clients value:
Clients appreciate the blend of critical analysis concerning risk/issues with a positive lens of potential/solution. My counseling tries to balance legal assessments with pragmatic on-the-ground considerations so I can provide practical advice that is workable for clients.
Cooley’s breadth and depth of expertise in the startup, tech and intellectual property area means you’ll receive some of the most sophisticated legal services available in these fields. Also, these services will be provided by people who are personable, accomplished, brilliant and hard-working without being aggressive, pretentious or inaccessible.
Some of my clients:
Google, Restorsea, littleBits Electronics, Stitch Fx, Chloe + Isabel, Ophthotech, Quirky, Cie Studios, SeatGeek, NowThis Media
Creative cooking, traveling, writing, fine dark chocolate
I root for:
Teams whose mascots I like, or which have seemingly nice, good people. (Admittedly, I have very shallow and fickle sports allegiances.)
