I help creative individuals and businesses with their copyright and trademark needs, so they can focus on creating – not legal paperwork. I love simplifying the law for my clients and building long-term relationships with them.
Smart business owners hire out their weaknesses. I’m here to help you hire out yours. I hope to become a trusted part of your team, the person who gets excited to tackle those legal tasks you’ve been ignoring. I want you to give your attention to your creative pursuits.
In order to do that, I offer a variety of flat-fee services and subscription plans that allow my clients to plan for the costs of their legal services. Some of the types of services I typically provide to creative individuals and business are included below.
For creative enterprises, your intellectual property is your most valuable asset. To help you protect that asset, I can help you understand and assert your intellectual property rights. For example, I can assist with:
- Copyright search and registration,
- Trademark screening, search, and registration, and
- Asserting your rights when copyright or trademark infringement occur.
I know that you don’t dream about reading, writing, and negotiating contracts, but I do. I can either write and negotiate your contract, read and comment on the contract, or just explain it to you so you understand what you are signing. Some of the kinds of contracts I help with include:
- Independent Contractor Agreements
- Confidentiality & Non-disclosure Agreements
- Licensing Agreements
While some people might opt to go online and form their business, sometimes you want a personal recommendation on the right business form for your creative business. By joining forces, we can assure that you start your business off on the right foot. To that end, I can help advise you on the right entity type or assist you by forming your corporation or LLC.
If you need help with one of these, or another issue, please contact me to determine if I would be a good fit for your team.
