Amin Talati Bolsters Trademark Practice With Addition of Two IP Leaders

Ms. Roach’s practice focuses exclusively on the trademark lifecycle. Since 2006, she has counseled clients on brand selection, portfolio strategy, trademark application prosecution, brand enforcement and defense, anti-counterfeiting measures, and trademark maintenance stretching from the United States to more than 140 countries around the world. Her extensive knowledge of trademark law helps her clients secure rights that would be otherwise unattainable using creative, outside-the-box approaches. She has extensive experience in a wide array of industries including food, dietary supplements, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and medical equipment.

“The firm’s established trademark practice, dedication to client service and its national reputation as a leader in the industries it serves really attracted me to Amin Talati,” said Ms. Roach. “I am so honored and excited to help lead the trademark practice. With Sean and the rest of the incredible team here we are going to do great things.”

Mr. Swidler’s client’s range from well-known international brands with substantial portfolios to start-ups establishing their footprint in the market. He applies his nearly 20 years’ experience and knowledge to develop and implement creative, cost-effective strategies to achieve client goals. Recently, he has been working with clients in the cannabis industry developing and implementing trademark protection strategies necessary to maximize value and compete at the highest level in this fast growing marketplace. In addition to trademark prosecution, Mr. Swidler is a registered patent attorney, and also develops and implements conflict resolution strategies in federal and state courts as well as the administrative boards at the USPTO.

“The trademark practice has been a pillar of the firm since its inception,” said Ivan Wasserman, the firm’s Managing Partner. “Whether it is a food, drug, dietary supplement, cosmetic or any consumer product, it will have regulatory and intellectual property needs. Being able to provide sophisticated, comprehensive, and coordinated advice to our clients in both areas is one of the keys to our success. We are so delighted that Amanda and Sean have joined us. Their decades of experience and unbridled enthusiasm will be an asset to our amazing clients.”
