Shareholder at Brooks Kushman PC
Hope Shovein focuses her practice on the procurement and enforcement of trademark rights. Her work encompasses trademark clearance searches and opinions, prosecuting trademark applications, managing domestic and international trademark portfolios, drafting and negotiating agreements, preparing and responding to cease and desist letters, and representing clients in opposition and cancellation proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, as well as litigation.
Ms Shovein specialises in helping clients enforce their rights in any medium, including the unauthorised use of trademarks and copyright-protected material in website content, online ads, spam, social media, online marketplaces and auction sites. She handles notice and takedown complaints under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and has successfully represented clients in arbitration proceedings under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, and other alternative dispute resolution policies. She also has experience with administrative agencies such as the Federal Drugs Administration and the Consumer Product Safety Commission with respect to product review and clearance.
Prior to joining Brooks Kushman, Ms Shovein worked in the IP department of a major automotive company, where she gained valuable experience in domestic and international trademark law. Her in-house legal background has given her valuable insight into the need for and how to provide clients with cost-effective and targeted legal service. She uses this perspective to assist clients across a range of industries with IP matters.
