Libby is the Chair of Brooks Kushman’s Trademark practice. With over 30 years of experience, she has been instrumental in developing and leading the firm’s trademark practice.
Libby manages substantial trademark portfolios both domestically and internationally, and works closely with a network of vetted international contacts developed over the past decades. She manages trademark matters in a variety of industries, including automotive, retail, restaurant and food, advertising and marketing, insurance, consumer products and financial services. At all times, Libby remains focused on her clients’ business goals and marketing strategies.
Her work encompasses selecting and clearing trademarks, prosecuting trademark applications, representing clients in trademark opposition and cancellation matters, drafting and negotiating licenses and other agreements relating to the use of trademarks and copyrights, and policing the unauthorized use or infringement of clients’ rights. She further provides litigation support and consulting on trademark issues and matters.
In addition, Libby assists advertising clients in the review of proper rules and regulations for specific types of product advertising, couponing and sampling. She brainstorms with clients to maintain the broadest possible protection within the realities of that client’s marketplace, taking full account of business goals in shaping an appropriate legal strategy.
