INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAW

As an experienced attorney, graphic designer, and musician, Zach knows a thing or two about protecting creative property. Whether registering marks specific to your brand, defending rights to a domain name, or licensing your work, he is one of very few who has experienced the process from beginning to end, and from the inside and out. We can assist you to navigate the hoops of copyright and trademark law in order to best protect your brands, domains, and licenses, in order to keep them polished as you build your business around them.
