Team Contact: Elizabeth Janda


SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – Brooks Kushman shareholder Libby Janda will be a participant on a panel discussing brand protection and anti-counterfeiting involving intellectual property at the China Intellectual Property Road Show in Detroit, MI. The conference will be held on July 10, 2017 at the Elijah J. McCoy Midwest Regional United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in Detroit, and is hosted by the USPTO, and the USPTO Office of Policy and International Affairs. The USPTO China Team will be present at the event, as well as other speakers from the U.S. government, academia, and practitioners. Presentations will focus on important issues involving China IP that will be of use to U.S. IP right holders, including litigation involving the defend trade secrets act, and creating and managing IP portfolios.

The event brings together policy makers and leaders on China IP issues, and will help business and inventors understand how to obtain and enforce IP rights in China.

Janda serves as the Chair of Brooks Kushman’s trademark practice. She has over 30 years of experience, manages substantial trademark portfolios both domestically and internationally, and works closely with a network of vetted international contacts that the firm has developed over the past decades. Janda handles trademark matters in a variety of industries, including the automotive field; restaurants and food products; advertising and marketing businesses; insurance enterprises; mortgage companies, banks and credit unions; and consumer products and services.
