What Gina Does
I devise cost-conscious asset development, commercialization, protection, litigation-avoidance, and enforcement strategies for clients.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY PROTECTION
I assist clients with identifying, developing and protecting valuable business assets and creative ideas using intellectual property laws in the following areas:
- trade secrets
- agreements (licensing, employment, technology transfer, research and development, and settlement)
- due diligence and intellectual property asset transfers
- legal opinions
I provide strategic intellectual property counsel to many clients, ranging from individual inventors and entrepreneurs to well established nonprofits and corporations whose activities go beyond Canadian borders. Some of these services include international intellectual property portfolio development and management, due diligence, research and advisory opinions on U.S. intellectual property law, foreign counsel management, and litigation avoidance strategies.
As a lawyer licensed to practice in New York state and before the United States Patent and Trademark Office, I assist clients with legal matters involving U.S. state and federal law.
COACHING, TEACHING, AND TRAINING
I provide fun, stimulating, and interactive workshops in an individual or group setting and teach my clients about areas of law that relate to their unique business needs. In these workshops, we identify and analyse how intellectual property law can be used to protect their own, unique valuable assets, manage their organizations more efficiently, and avoid stressful and expensive legal disputes before they arise.
