Dilworth IP announces the addition of trademark attorney Julie Tolek to our growing team. Over her career, Julie has worked closely with brand-focused enterprises of various sizes – in industries ranging from pharma and biotech to aerospace and artificial intelligence – to enhance their brand strategies, and to enforce the valuable trademarks that differentiate them in their marketplaces. Dilworth clients will benefit from her experience in everything from routine trademark procurement to issues involving disputes, anti-counterfeit protection, website domain and product takedowns, landscape analysis, and trademark licensing.

“I’m excited to welcome Julie to our team,” says Founder and Managing Partner Michael Dilworth. “Her specialized experience with trademark law will expand our already robust trademark practice and provide greater opportunities to our clients to protect and leverage their valuable brands.” 

“I’m thrilled to join Dilworth IP,” says Julie. “I’m excited to work with such a client-focused firm with strong client service values. The depth of resources available to me at Dilworth will help support my clients in exciting new ways. Michael and his team share my goal of building lasting and rewarding client relationships to help them protect their valuable brand identities on a global stage.” 

A self-proclaimed branding “nerd” at heart, Julie has earned a reputation with clients and colleagues for her passionate expertise in branding and marketing. 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 has advised clients of all sizes, from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies.
