Experienced, practical & collaborative.

IMG_1137.jpg

After decades working at several law firms and companies, I set out to practice law my own way: as part of a collaborative relationship where I get to know you and your business, where communication is clear, where legal advice makes sense, and where you might actually enjoy talking to your lawyer.

Throughout my career, I have seen lawyers communicate poorly with clients, failing to fully explain billing and costs, promptly return phone calls, or make legal issues understandable.  Not surprisingly, clients end up confused and frustrated - which often makes dealing with lawyers downright unpleasant.  My approach is different.

My goal is for clients to feel like they are working with a friend who happens to be a lawyer.  I simplify legal issues in order to transform concern and confusion into confidence and clarity about the process.  You and I work together, pursuing the same objective: to make sure that you and your company's brand are protected.  

My connection with my clients is why I do what I do.  Utilizing my years of experience and legal expertise where it matters most, I focus on results, while keeping your business goals and budget top of mind.  I don't nickel and dime you for completing quick tasks.  Our communication is open, friendly, and informative.  I am here to help, whether that means being part of the team or taking something off your plate.

Although I am based in New York, I work with clients everywhere, communicating in whichever way works best: in-person meetings, phone calls, video chats, and email.  Let's start off with an initial, free consultation to discuss your legal needs, your business goals, and explore how I can help.

Let's get started.


Lindsey worked with our corporate legal team for over two years, helping to manage our extensive portfolio of U.S. and international trademarks. Lindsey worked directly with in-house clients, outside counsel, and international counsel. She is a solid lawyer, flexible thinker, and a pleasure to have around the office. I recommend her without reservation to anyone looking for representation on trademark matters.

Over twenty years of attorney experience. 

Through my decades of practice - at New York law firms, a European intellectual property firm, a worldwide legal consulting company, as part of an in-house corporate legal team, and as a solo practitioner - I have extensive experience advising clients on trademark issues in a wide variety of industries. 

My work has included in-depth client counseling, global trademark strategy, domestic and foreign trademark prosecution work, complex settlement negotiations, Trademark Office disputes, cease and desist letters, domain name disputes, and litigation.  I’ve guided dozens of trademark applications through the registration process and interacted effectively with U.S. Trademark Office attorneys, overcoming a range of obstacles and achieving success for my clients.

My client base has been diverse: from a major sports league to a well-known video game company, a large healthcare system to a leading department store, an exclusive resort to a worldwide information and marketing company, a family-owned real estate development company to a snowboarding retailer, a medical technology innovator to an interior designer, an executive coach to a branding expert.
