Approaching legal issues with a business perspective reduces risks and boosts outcomes
Jessica functions as a hybrid business and legal adviser, since her clients' legal issues are often intertwined with their business goals. Calling upon her own previous experience in advertising and media, she helps brands define their identity and grow their presence in the marketplace. She regularly counsels clients on domestic and international trademark portfolio development, copyrights, advertising and marketing issues, sponsorship and endorsement agreements, licensing, intellectual property enforcement, technology integration and related privacy concerns. She also assists with intellectual property aspects of corporate transactions.
Jessica handles transactional matters on a day-to-day basis. She also litigates in court, as well as before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. In addition, she has developed a deep understanding of IP issues in China and was able to help several clients successfully combat trademark pirates and counterfeiters in the Chinese market. This skill set is becoming increasingly valuable to many companies doing business abroad.
Jessica is committed to serving many of the firm's pro bono clients. She regularly counsels them on intellectual property matters and other general business issues. She is also a certified information privacy professional (CIPP/US), credentialed by the International Association of Privacy Professionals.
