Anna Kuhn

Anna Kuhn focuses her practice on trademark selection and clearance, U.S. and international trademark registration, rights policing and enforcement, and domain name and internet issues. She represents clients in registration matters before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and handles disputes including opposition and cancellation proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board and UDRP proceedings. Her work includes negotiating license agreements, performing due diligence for trademarks involved in corporate transactions, and advising clients concerning copyright issues and rights of publicity.
