Gail I Nevius Abbas

Partner at Pranger Law PC

With more than 20 years of experience, Gail I Nevius Abbas helps clients develop and implement their domestic and international trademark registration and policing strategies.

Early in her career, Ms Nevius Abbas gained in-house experience at a global apparel company, where she was tasked with managing and enforcing its historic trademarks. She went on to practise for nearly a decade at a national US firm, where she served as the chair of its Northern California trademark department. Now a partner at the boutique firm of Pranger Law PC, which she joined in 2014, she continues to manage domestic and international trademark portfolios for clients in a wide range of industries, including apparel and other consumer goods, toys and games, health and fitness, food and beverages, educational services, venture capital and financial services, and computer software and hardware for the automotive, insurance and data security industries.

No stranger to the dangers of trademark infringement either at home or abroad, she has managed trademark infringement actions before the US federal courts and the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board and has led successful enforcement actions in a number of foreign jurisdictions, including the European Union, China, Hong Kong and Korea.

Ms Nevius Abbas also represents clients in registering and enforcing certification marks, navigating obstacles that can arise from inconsistent recognition of certification marks in countries worldwide.
