Julie understands that each brand and business is unique in its needs and considers all aspects of the business to form a holistic brand strategy when advising clients. She helps her clients take educated risks when appropriate and understands when a more conservative approach may be necessary. She advises clients of all sizes, from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies.

Julie is experienced in all areas of trademark prosecution, including Office Actions, Section 8 and 15 filings, and other long term portfolio maintenance and strategy.
