Sue is a nationally recognized expert on all facets of trademark, copyright and related unfair competition law.  She has handled all aspects of these areas of the law, including major litigation and major transactions.

Sue is an experienced litigator who has handled many trademark, trade dress, copyright, false advertising, domain name, keyword and other Internet disputes and unfair competition matters, some of which have made new law.  She has acted as lead counsel in suits for such clients as Carter's, Lever Brothers Company, Snapple Beverage Corp., Toy Manufacturers of America, Inc., The Coca-Cola Company, Ford Motor Company, Burberry Limited, Bell's Brewery, Inc., Purdue Pharma L.P., Huntsman Gay Capital Partners and Half the Sky Foundation. She has also designed and implemented anti-counterfeiting programs for clients in such diverse fields as fashion and accessories, semiconductor chips and automotive parts, and represented clients in a multitude of industries in oppositions and cancellation proceedings in the United States Patent and Trademark Office and in ADR proceedings.

In addition to her extensive experience in contested proceedings, Sue brings a pragmatic approach to trademark clearance, prosecution and enforcement in the United States and internationally.  She applies a litigator’s perspective to helping clients minimize the risk of receiving a third party’s objection to the adoption of new marks, while also creating strategies for building brands that strengthen the client’s ability to enforce its rights against infringers.  She has also handled the trademark and copyright aspects of many complex corporate transactions that have depended on the parties’ intellectual property rights, and advised clients on designing and implementing trademark and copyright licensing programs.
