In addition, David has worked with several clients to manage, protect, and police their international trademark portfolios. In this role, he regularly counsels businesses on trademark searching, clearance, and prosecution; evaluating watch notices; negotiating settlement and consent agreements; and coordinating multi-jurisdiction opposition, cancellation, and infringement proceedings.
