Practice/Organization Description

I am a St. Louis trademark attorney dedicated to helping individuals, businesses, organizations, and educational institutions avoid the high costs and devastating effects of being sued for trademark infringement. I focus my practice of law on assisting clients with clearing and protecting the various names, logos, and slogans they use (or intend to use) to advertise and sell their products and services. No matter where in the world they are located, I can help clients conduct their trademark search, prepare and file their trademark application, guide them through the United States trademark registration process, represent them in trademark opposition and trademark cancellation proceedings, and provide them with experienced counsel in a wide variety of trademark infringement and domain name litigation matters.

Over the years, I have worked with a wide range of clients, including start-up businesses, well-established companies, non-profit organizations, local associations, and universities. Although most of my clients are located in the United States, I have also had the good fortune of working with businesses headquartered in Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa. My clients span a number of different industries, such as software development, fashion, publishing, food/beverage products, educational products/services, restaurants, and retail stores. I have filed over 1,000 federal trademark applications on behalf of clients and have been the attorney of record in a number of trademark infringement lawsuits and Trademark Trial and Appeal Board ("TTAB") administrative proceedings.

I teach a continuing education course on trademark law at St. Louis Community College, and have spoken many times to adult students participating in an entrepreneurial program organized by the University of Missouri. I also have had the honor of presenting a continuing legal education seminar on trademark law to members of the Missouri Bar at its annual Solo and Small Firm Conference.
