Arent Fox Adds Top Fashion Partner to Market-Leading Intellectual Property Practice
Already in 2015, Arent Fox has added four intellectual property partners in New York and a total of 17 lawyers and professionals to its firmwide Intellectual Property practice.
Ms. Marsh, a noted intellectual property litigator and counselor, focuses on matters for leading fashion and consumer brands.
“Michelle is a well-respected and extremely talented attorneys and welcome additions to our New York office,” said New York Managing Partner Andrew I. Silfen. “Arent Fox is widely recognized as a market-leading and go-to firm for intellectual property matters and Michelle and Linda will strengthen our ability to serve clients.” Earlier this year, partners Steven I. Weisburd and Richard LaCava joined the New York office and the firm’s Intellectual Property practice, which has more than 100 professionals serving clients in the United States and around the globe.
Ms. Marsh advises companies on all facets of intellectual property protection and executes intellectual property defense measures, such as brand protection programs, anti-counterfeiting and anti-piracy measures, and co-branding and licensing agreements. She handles matters in state and federal courts, appellate venues, and at the US Patent and Trademark Office and the US Copyright Office. She also counsels on acquisitions involving intellectual property assets. In addition, Ms. Marsh advises alcoholic beverage, computer software, biotechnology, education, financial services, and media and entertainment companies.
“Michelle Marsh is a major asset to our practice,” said partner Ricardo Fischer, who heads Arent Fox’s Trademark group. “She brings a highly accomplished background in the trademark, trade dress, and design patent areas, with an important focus on the fashion industry, which is expanding in importance as part of our overall IP platform. We look to Michelle to further enhance our IP brand in the New York market.”
Ms. Marsh earned her law degree from Fordham University School of Law, where she was editor-in-chief of the Fordham Moot Court. She received her undergraduate degree in Political Science, cum laude, from Boston University.
Chambers Global, Chambers USA, and Legal 500 annually recognize the Intellectual Property practice and its attorneys as industry leaders. Arent Fox is one of the few “go-to” firms for novel and high-profile intellectual property issues and with more than 100 full-time IP professionals, the group offers a full range of services across copyright, patent, and trademark matters.
