Trademarks and Copyrights Practice Group Co-chair at Dickinson Wright
Nicole Meyer’s practice covers all aspects of trademark, domain name and copyright law. She focuses on domestic and foreign trademark counselling and global portfolio management, and works with companies to develop and acquire intellectual property, including clearance and availability counselling, and the strategic acquisition, protection, promotion and enforcement of marks. She also handles all aspects of domain name acquisitions and disputes, copyright registration and enforcement, and litigation concerning infringement, dilution and unfair competition issues. Ms Meyer has managed worldwide trademark portfolios on behalf of numerous clients, including marks filed in over 175 countries, covering many industries such as clothing, travel, food and retail. She is currently managing thousands of active domestic and foreign trademark matters for both mature and emerging companies on an ongoing basis.
Ms Meyer has experience with a broad array of domain name dispute resolution policies and forums, successfully obtaining over 75 domain name transfers on behalf of clients under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) and corresponding policies in countries that have adopted variations of the UDRP. She also has extensive experience with drafting and negotiating co-branding agreements, licence agreements involving complex corporate structures and between unaffiliated companies, worldwide trademark assignments, and international master licence agreements. Also, Ms Meyer has experience with global anti-counterfeiting enforcement and shutting down ex-licensees worldwide that continue to use marks post- termination.
While it is typically advisable to find a way to resolve disputes short of litigation, Ms Meyer has represented clients in federal courts involving copyright and trademark infringement, counterfeiting, dilution and unfair competition claims in California, Florida, New York, Virginia, Michigan, Georgia, Oklahoma and Wisconsin. Ms Meyer has been named a Washington DC Super Lawyer “Rising Star” for her IP litigation work.
