Julia counsels clients on all aspects of domestic and international trademark portfolio development and management. Julia’s practice includes partnering with clients early on in their brand creation process to help in the selection, clearance, use, and prosecution of trademarks. In this role, she excels at helping clients identify ways to optimize the value of their brands, including through the strategic acquisition of marks. She also helps clients throughout the trademark process, including drafting, prosecution, and maintenance of marks.
In addition to her trademark prosecution and enforcement practice, Julia helps clients conduct IP audits, which often necessitate the creation of privacy policies and terms of service for use in their platforms. She also assists clients with online enforcement, including identifying infringing products online and drafting related correspondence with opposing parties and the administrative bodies tasked with removing the infringing products and marks.

Julia earned her undergraduate degree in History from The George Washington University and her law degree from the University of Miami School of Law, where she was a member of the University of Miami Business Law Review.
