Trademark and Copyright Procurement and Management Chair at Dinsmore & Shohl LLP
Trademark and copyright chair April L Besl exemplifies Dinsmore’s client approach. Clients and peers appreciate her personable style and responsiveness and have called her “a pleasure to work with” and a “trademark guru”. Ms Besl approaches issues holistically – from both a legal and business perspective – and, using that approach, she currently services a large and diverse portfolio of domestic and international trademarks and copyright for a variety of clients ranging from Fortune 100 companies to individual entrepreneurs.
She has experience assisting clients with emerging issues related to the impact of social media, the Web and technology on their business and marketing strategies, including preventing the misuse of client brands and copyright on these platforms. In addressing these evolving issues and technologies, she provides a direct, strategic and thoughtful approach tailored to the culture and goals of each individual client.
She frequently appears in federal court and before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board to defend clients’ intellectual property rights. She has successfully resolved cases in favour of her clients, including in multimillion-dollar trademark disputes, Digital Millennium Copyright Act disputes, copyright ownership disputes and licensing disputes.
