Summary

Christina D. Frangiosa counsels clients across various industries about intellectual property and technology law. Her combined litigation and transactional practice concentrates on copyright and trademark advisory services (search, applications, and use), counterfeiting, infringement, unfair competition, false advertising, trade secrets, licensing, and policy development. Chris’s experience ranges from educating clients about protecting their copyright, trademark, and trade secret rights, to negotiating agreements to protect these rights, and finally, to litigating and resolving their enforcement claims or defending against claims filed by others. She has appeared in state and federal courts on behalf of her clients and represents them in trademark applications filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and in opposition and cancellation proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB).

Chris is also very active in the legal community, serving in many key leadership roles of the American Bar Association Section of Intellectual Property Law, providing legal commentary on IP-related issues in the mainstream media, authoring articles, leading CLE sessions, and most notably, serving as the publisher of the Privacy and IP Law Blog, which addresses recent developments in trademark, copyright, computer, data security, and privacy law.
