SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – Managing Intellectual Property is hosting the second annual Global Trademark Roadshow in multiple cities across the United States, including New York, where Brooks Kushman shareholder Kristin L. Murphy will be speaking. At each city location, panels will be led by experts in the industry, and there will be an array of opportunities for in-house trademark and IP counsel to learn more about the global trademark marketplace and the developments in global trademarks through engaging talks and networking.

Murphy will be discussing when it makes sense to litigate. She will be specifically focusing on balancing enforcement and business costs, practical considerations involved in undertaking enforcement, and what to do when an enforcement goes viral and threatens your reputation.

She works with multi-national corporations on the management of patent and trademark portfolios, as well as IP litigation. With respect to trademark matters, Kristin has experience managing domestic and international trademark portfolios, and works with clients on drafting and negotiating agreements, preparing and responding to cease and desist letters, as well as opposition and cancellation proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.
