You have a name, a product or an idea … while these may be intangible, they represent your intellectual property – the unique character of your business. They are yours and yours alone, and like business owners the world over, you want to keep them that way.
A well-designed and well-researched intellectual property program helps to safeguard your names, products, business information, and ideas against infringement or copying by others. It can also save your business valuable time and money in the event a name or idea is already taken.
Judith has 30 years experience practicing law in Colorado. She works to tailor an intellectual property protection program around your business’s unique needs – whether you are creating a new name for a product or service, developing new contracts to protect internal copyrights, patents, or trade secrets, registering a name for an existing product, or preparing an advertising campaign in print or over the Internet.
Legal Assistance includes: U.S. Trademark Selection, Review, Prosecution & Protection, U.S. Copyright Registration and Protection, Intellectual Property Audits, General Contract Drafting and Review, Intellectual Property Due Diligence, Intellectual Property Licensing, and Colorado Entity Formation & Maintenance.
Over her years in practice, she has worked in other varied areas including complex civil litigation, domestic issues, defamation, commercial and residential real estate, entity formation and maintenance, and more.
Judith has recently been appointed to the Trademark Office Practices Committee of the International Trademark Association (INTA) for the 2016-2017 term. The committee evaluates and suggests improvements to trademark office practices, procedures, operations and regulations at the national, regional, and international levels. The committee will monitor trademark office developments in various jurisdictions, complete analyses and propose policy recommendations to the Board. Work includes report and submission writing and advocacy in conjunction with relevant INTA committees and staff.
