Lisa Hemphill’s experience proves that she covers 360 degrees of trademark law. She is frequently clearing trademarks for use and registration with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, prosecuting applications, handling opposition and cancellation proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board of the USPTO, writing cease and desist letters to infringers, and conducting foreign prosecution of trademarks all around the world.

Representing startups to established companies with legal departments that outsource their intellectual property work, Lisa is also managing large trademark portfolios, conducting due diligence reviews of acquisition targets, preparing security agreements so that companies can leverage their intellectual property, and helping clients resolve disputes. Lisa has also counseled clients in the copyright area, particularly in their use of stock imagery.

Lisa is known for being highly personable and easy to work with. She goes above and beyond and handles issues and matters quickly with U.S. and foreign authorities and clients. Lisa makes a point of understanding each of her client’s business, growth plans and unique concerns – particularly today as they pursue global strategies to leverage and protect their IP assets.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
