Robyn Lederman`s Global Expertise Boosts Firm`s Growing Practice

Southfield, Mich., September 21, 2011 – Brooks Kushman P.C. is pleased to announce it is expanding its trademark practice with the addition of Robyn Lederman in the firm`s Southfield, Michigan headquarters.  Lederman returns to the growing intellectual property law firm where she previously was an Associate.  As a part of the copyright, trade secret, and trademark groups, Robyn will focus on advising clients on global branding strategy, trademark and domain name counseling, clearance, protection, and enforcement.

“We are thrilled for ourselves and our clients that Robyn has returned to Brooks Kushman,” said Mark Cantor, president of Brooks Kushman.  “Her more than 25 years practicing in trademark law around the world will bring a unique insight to her trademark work.  Robyn`s return is a testament to the firm`s continued commitment to strengthening and diversifying our firm to best serve our clients in the ever-changing world of intellectual property law.”

Robyn Lederman comes to Brooks Kushman from Cantor Colburn LLP, where she was Senior Trademark Counsel for more than five years.  Robyn`s trademark expertise crosses into a unique area—she practiced for more than seven years in the Herzelia, Israel office of law firm Eitan, Pearl, Latzer, Cohen-Zedek, where she honed her expertise dealing with trademark issues across borders in what has become known as “the start-up nation.”  Her experience in Israel fostered longstanding relationships and allows Robyn a keen understanding of the global trademark arena and navigating the intricacies of bringing overseas trademarks into the U.S.
