Shareholder at Brooks Kushman PC
Hope Shovein has 20 years of experience in trademark matters, with a focus on the procurement and enforcement of trademark rights. She also represents clients in opposition and cancellation proceedings before the USPTO’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, as well as litigation. Her work focuses on brand management and protection, such as cease and desist programmes, social media takedowns, enforcement at Customs, complaints under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and domain name complaints.
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 DMCA and has successfully represented clients in arbitration proceedings under ICANN’s Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy and other alternative dispute resolution policies. She also has experience with administrative agencies such as the Food and Drug 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 extensive experience in domestic and international trademark law. This in-house legal background has given her valuable insight into providing clients with cost-effective and targeted legal service. She uses this perspective to assist clients across a range of industries on IP matters.
