Dykema’s trademark skill set is well rounded thanks to the varied backgrounds of its lawyers, who bring USPTO, in-house and policy consulting experience to the table. Collectively, they are well prepared for anything that comes through the door – be it a large portfolio in need of care and attention, a significant licensing deal or challenging litigation. As head of the trademark practice, Jennifer Fraser has cultivated a culture of immediate responsiveness, ensuring that the whole group is comfortable with a 24/7 manner of working. This makes it ideally placed to deal rapidly with emerging global issues. A former examining attorney, Fraser knows how to navigate prosecution obstacles and investigate fraudulent activities before the USPTO. She is also an ace on enforcement. In senior counsel Marsha Gentner, Fraser has someone to consult with on prosecution anomalies and TTAB proceedings. Gentner has over 30 years’ experience in prosecution and litigation and is a strong strategic sounding board for colleagues and clients alike. Eric Fingerhut adds considerably to the firm’s depth of expertise in global filing and portfolio management, as well as litigation. He is creative in seeking solutions and resolving trademark problems in an effective, non-contentious manner.
