Licensed in AZ CA
Georgetown University Law Center

G'day, my name is Michele! I work with startups, entrepreneurs and small/medium-sized businesses across the country in a wide array of industries. I help them with all of their ongoing, daily legal needs. This includes entity formation, M&A, contract drafting and review, employment, asset sale & acquisition, and business sales or shareholder exits. I'm half-Australian, half-Italian, and I've lived the last 20+ years of my life in America. I've lived all over the USA, completing high school in the deep south, graduating cum laude from Washington University in St. Louis, and then cum laude from Georgetown University Law Center. After law school I worked for the Los Angeles office of Latham & Watkins, LLP. After four intense and rewarding years there, I left to become General Counsel and VP of an incredible, industry-changing start-up called Urban Mining Company (UMC) that manufactures rare earth permanent magnets. I now work for Phocus Law where I help run our practice focused on entrepreneurs, startups, and SMEs. I love what I do, and I'd love to be of help! My focus is on providing stress-free, enjoyable, and high-quality legal service to all of my clients. Being a good lawyer isn't enough: the client experience should also be great. But work isn't everything, and I love my free time. I've been an avid traveler since my parents put me on a plane to Italy at 9-months old. I'm also a music nut, and am still looking for that perfect client that will engage me to explain why Dark Side Of The Moon is the greatest album of all time. Having grown up in a remote, and gorgeous corner of Australia, I feel a strong connection to nature, and love being in the elements.

Intellectual Property Legal Questions and Answers

Intellectual Property

Joint Agreement

California

Asked on Mar 21, 2023

Can a JV hold patents?

I am currently exploring the possibility of forming a joint venture (JV) with another company in my industry. As part of our business plan, we are considering the development of new products and technologies that may be patentable. However, I am unsure if a JV has the legal capacity to hold patents and protect our intellectual property rights. Therefore, I would like to seek advice from a lawyer on this matter.

Jane D.

Answered Apr 14, 2023

As a legal entity, a joint venture (JV) can own a patent. Given the temporary nature of JVs and the fact that there will be multiple owners of any patents, there is a complex mix of intellectual property (IP) ownership rights, dispute resolution, and enforcement issues that need to be agreed upon in order to properly protect everyone's intellectual property rights. Consideration will need to be given to what IP ownership and rights will look like during and after the JV and it may be easier to have both companies listed as the patent authors for inventions from the outset (versus naming the JV as the author). A joint IP agreement is the best solution to outline the rights of each party, the process for developing patentable technologies sufficient to be a patent author, filing and prosecuting patents, and future licensing and exploitation of the patent.

Intellectual Property

Trademark

Massachusetts

Asked on Oct 22, 2021

Can I trademark the name of my software?

Can I trademark the name of my software if the same name is already trademarked in a different country/state? I am starting up a FinTech company right now and I am trying to trademark the name of my mobile app; however, after some searching, I realized that a company in the UK has already trademarked the same name. It is also a company that makes a mobile app in the FinTech industry - just in a different area of interest. Are there any suggestions for how I would go about trademarking the name of my software, or do I have to come up with a different name?

Roman V.

Answered Nov 2, 2021

Yes, it's generally possible to trademark the name of your software, as long as it is not a generic name or descriptive of the product. You should also do a clearance search to make sure no other company is using the same or similar name for similar services. I would be glad to discuss more details and help with the trademark process. Thanks.

Intellectual Property

Independent Contractor Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on Nov 10, 2023

How to address IP rights in contractor agreements?

I am an entrepreneur who has recently started a business and is looking to hire independent contractors to help with my operations. I want to make sure that I have a clear understanding of the Intellectual Property rights associated with this agreement, so that I can ensure that any IP created by the contractors is legally protected.

N'kia N.

Answered Nov 14, 2023

A business has multiple options for protecting its intellectual property when working with an independent contractor. For a few examples: 1. A "work made for hire" agreement or clause can establish that the business is the owner of intellectual property that the independent contractor creates. 2. A confidentiality or non-disclosure agreement or clause can require the independent contractor to maintain the confidentiality (and limit or prohibit the independent contractor's disclosure) of the business' confidential or proprietary information. This can include the business' trade secrets (one type of intellectual property), as well as other information that might not rise to the level of trade secrets. 3. A non-competition agreement or clause can prohibit the independent contractor from using, or allowing someone else to use, the business' intellectual property to compete with the business. An independent contractor agreement with intellectual property considerations could implicate various federal and state-specific laws. A knowledgeable North Carolina attorney should be able to help you with an independent contractor agreement that complies with all the applicable laws. To ensure that you have a clear understanding of the intellectual property rights associated with your independent contractor agreement, you should consult with a knowledgeable attorney.

Intellectual Property

Asset Purchase Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on Oct 11, 2023

How are intellectual properties handled in an asset purchase agreement?

I am looking to purchase a business that includes intellectual property and I want to ensure that it is properly handled in the asset purchase agreement. I am concerned that the intellectual property may not be properly transferred to me in the agreement and I want to make sure that the agreement is legally binding and that I will be the rightful owner of the intellectual property after the purchase.

N'kia N.

Answered Oct 17, 2023

Although not necessarily required, the parties to an asset purchase agreement oftentimes find that it is in their best interests to work with a knowledgeable intellectual property attorney. The attorney can negotiate and draft the parts of the agreement that pertain specifically to intellectual property. The attorney can also assist with the parts of the agreement that do not appear to affect intellectual property but have the potential to. If you are considering an asset purchase agreement that involves intellectual property, you should also consider hiring an intellectual property attorney.

Trademark Application

New York

Asked on Jun 20, 2024

Can I trademark a phrase that includes a common word?

I am in the process of starting a small business selling handmade jewelry, and I have come up with a catchy phrase that I want to use as my brand name. However, the phrase includes a word that is commonly used in the industry. I am unsure if I can successfully trademark this phrase, as I have heard that trademarks cannot be registered for generic or descriptive terms. I would like to know if it is possible to trademark this phrase and what steps I need to take to ensure the best chance of success in the trademark application process.

Damien B.

Answered Jun 21, 2024

Hello! This is Attorney Damien Bosco. My law office is in Forest Hills, Queens County, New York City. My practice covers the New York City metropolitan area and Long Island. In some situations, I also handle matters throughout New York State. If your phrase contains common jewelry terms, registering it may be challenging. One suggestion is to check the USPTO Database for similar trademarks. If other businesses have brands using the same common word in their brand name, that could give an indication that you may still be able to use it in your brand name. Nonexclusive use means that the word or phrase can be used by other parties and is not solely owned or controlled by the trademark holder. Consult with a trademark attorney for guidance on the registration process and the viability of your chosen phrase.
