Karen has a talent for helping clients make strategic decisions about IP assets that support their overall business goals. That includes, but goes beyond, basic issues like selecting, defending and enforcing IP rights. Karen often assists with corporate structuring issues, often rooted in tax analysis, for entities with IP assets that represent a large portion of their overall value. She also strategizes on re-brandings, negotiates commercial agreements involving IP rights and helps clients to incorporate protections for their IP into their business operations.

With the many international relationships in the fashion industry, Karen has developed significant experience in cross-border issues. Her team is known for its creative approach to those matters. Karen brings a background in economics and finance to her practice, and gained experience as a clerk in New York bankruptcy court that continues to benefit clients that have either gone through reorganizations or acquired assets from third parties in bankruptcy.
