An experienced litigator, Laura tries cases in federal and state trial and appellate courts across the country in matters relating to copyright, trademark, unfair competition, right of publicity, and represents clients in inter partes proceedings before the USPTO’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. She also provides strategic advice to clients on diverse intellectual property issues and negotiates and drafts IP agreements, including license and coexistence agreements.
Laura’s clients include LEGO, WeWork, Ann Taylor, Gap, and Old Navy, among many others across industries including fashion (clothing and jewelry), beverage, personal care, toy, and financial services companies, and sports teams – and range in size from startups to Fortune 500 companies. Laura’s win over Coca-Cola and its “ZERO” mark before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ranked #2 on Law360’s midyear review of 2018’s top trademark rulings.
