Lisa Normand

Lisa Normand is an associate in the Intellectual Property, Trademark, and Social Media Practice Groups. She focuses her practice in the area of intellectual property law, where she concentrates on all aspects of trademark and copyright law.

Lisa's experience counseling Fortune 100 companies as well as emerging businesses informs her flexible and creative approach to brand management, tailored to meet each client's unique business objectives. She conducts international trademark clearance searches and trade dress review prior to a product's launch, both to assess infringement risks and to develop a trademark protection and registration strategy, and manages the prosecution and maintenance of clients' portfolios of intellectual property assets.

Mindful that enforcing her clients' rights in those assets against infringement is essential to brand management, Lisa utilizes sensible enforcement strategies, ranging from urging business-minded resolutions to litigating her clients' rights in federal court and the U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.

Lisa's keen understanding of the creative process is essential to how she approaches copyright counseling and enforcement. She recognizes that counseling clients on copyright issues requires that authors' personal connections to their creative works be taken into account. This means crafting agreements to avoid ownership conflicts at the outset, developing practical solutions when conflicts do arise, and, if necessary, litigating ownership and infringement matters to protect her clients' rights.

Her experience extends not only to traditional trademark and copyright concepts, but also to emerging branding and content-sharing issues – especially with respect to domain names, mobile device apps, and social media – which play a role in virtually all aspects of trademark and copyright law, whether it be counseling clients regarding securing their brands’ rights in the latest social media outlet or leveraging administrative "notice and takedown" and domain name recapture procedures to tackle infringement from all angles.
