Attorney Profile

Heather’s practice focuses on protecting a company’s intellectual property; a fundamental feature of every business.  Heather’s practice includes trademark clearance and selection, domestic and foreign trademark prosecution, enforcement, proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB), licensing, trade secret protection, copyright, rights of publicity, domain names disputes, and general client counseling.  Heather believes in supporting companies at each stage – from due diligence when choosing a name, to ongoing brand management, to ensuring portfolios are safeguarded and ready for sale.

Heather is also focused on guiding businesses through the ever-expanding maze of privacy laws, both domestically and internationally.  This includes drafting website policies, compliance with specific privacy laws (such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act (COPPA), and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)).  Heather works with companies to design and strengthen their privacy and data security policies and practices, to help them prevent data security breaches, and to minimize the risks associated therein.

Heather serves as Vice Chair of the California Lawyers Association Intellectual Property Section.  Heather frequently speaks and writes about IP, Internet, tech, and privacy issues.  She has been quoted in publications such as the Los Angeles Times and CNBC.

Scholarly Lectures/Writings:

  • It has been a year since GDPR went into affect. Was it the start of a data protection revolution or a data protection catastrophe? How have data and security practices changed, and what have we learned? How are data protection laws are changing around the globe. After 6-years of negotiations, Brazil has enacted its General Data Protection Law (GDPL), set to take effect in February of 2020. California, the most populous state in the United States, passed the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which is similarly set to take effect on January 1, 2020. And finally, Russia is in the midst of yet another set of new data protection rules. Join us as we learn about how each of these laws will affect our clients, how to comply, and how to survive.  , Moderator, GDPR and its Progeny: Lessons Learned and What to Expect Globally, International Technology Law Association, 2019
