I am a partner at Dunnington Bartholow & Miller LLP, a law firm based in New York City.  I started this blog to inform, stay informed, and share my thoughts and experiences in a field that has captured my imagination, attention and livelihood.  I founded and co-chair an annual Federal Bar Association fashion law conference that runs every year in New York City and Paris.  

My practice focuses on both transactional and litigation issues faced by the apparel, retail, modeling, and luxury markets.  I regularly counsel my clients on trademark, copyright, business licensing and disputes as well as business agreements, social/digital media, and client strategic counseling.  In my litigation practice, I counsel my clients on matters such as copyright and trademark infringement, trade secrets, unfair competition, breach of contract, fraud, right of publicity and privacy, defamation, as well as shareholder and business owner disputes in closely held businesses.

I have lectured in a variety of venues on issues dealing with intellectual property, business ownership and disputes, social media, and law firm management issues.  Lecture engagements have included Lawline.com, the New York County Lawyers’ Association, the New York City Bar, the New York State Bar Association, Harvard Law School, Brooklyn Law School, New York Law School, South by Southwest Interactive, Cardozo Law School, the School of Visual Arts, Manhattan School of Music, Direct Marketing Association Conference (Geek-End), and the New York Foundation for the Arts.

I have also written articles for a variety of publications including the New York Law Journal, National Law Journal, Ecommerce Law and Strategy, Brooklyn Journal of International Law, Cardozo Arts and Entertainment Law Journal, and Loyola of Los Angeles International and Comparative Law Review and the Internet Law Journal.

Hope you enjoy this blog, send me your thoughts and comments, would love to hear from you.
