Amy's practice encompasses a broad range of intellectual property matters. She has been and is involved in litigation regarding a variety of intellectual property matters, including trademarks, utility and design patents, trade secrets, and copyrights.

Amy is also very experienced in enforcing intellectual property rights outside of the courtroom.  She has developed a network of contacts in her anti-counterfeiting practice, and works closely with several federal agencies and law enforcement groups to develop cases against criminal offenders.   She also works with clients to streamline enforcement procedures to fit their requirements and resources to get the most effective and efficient results.

Amy has extensive litigation experience. Throughout her career, she has successfully tried patent, trademark, trade secret and copyright cases in Federal Courts nationwide. She has also worked on several International Trade Commission matters.

Prior to joining Brooks Kushman, Amy worked in the intellectual property department of a major automotive company, where she learned first-hand about client expectations. That in-house legal experience enables Amy to anticipate internal corporate issues and look at issues from the in-house attorney’s and corporate employee’s perspective.
