Clients tell me that I’m unusually creative and imaginative, and that they come to me as their go-to attorney to help them explore options and find unique ways to achieve their goals. They appreciate that I take a collegial approach whenever possible, and am generally very pleasant and easy to work with, but am also unfailingly determined and assertive when it comes to defending and advancing my clients’ interests. Many of my clients have been with me for a long time and keep coming back year after year, which I take as the highest compliment.
Drawing on her unique background in the arts and performance sports, Rose Auslander represents clients in intellectual property issues such as trademark, domain name, certification mark, and copyright clearance and protection—plus trademark and trade dress infringement; unfair competition, domain name, and dilution litigation; copyright litigation; and UDRP domain name arbitration.
Rose works with clients in a variety of industries, such as fine art, fashion, entertainment, financial and internet-related services, standards accreditation, and consumer-products. She has also helped clients protect character properties such as the HULK, the Muppets, and The Supreme Chicken, and special insignia such as Usain Bolt’s Lightning Bolt trademark.
On the trademark side of her practice, Rose works with organizations to develop strategies for the development and protection of their brand portfolios, assisting with the clearance and adoption of new brands; negotiations to obtain domain names; the filing and prosecution of trademark, certification mark, and copyright applications; and the negotiation and drafting of trademark and copyright licenses and assignments, and trademark co-existence agreements. Rose also vigorously polices clients’ trademarks and copyrights, handling cease-and-desist letters, and disputes adjudicated in the courts and in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
Rose also comes to the aid of companies that need help achieving swift take-down of infringing apps, Facebook pages, and Twitter feeds.
Serving clients located in countries around the world, Rose helps international entities protect their IP rights within the United States. Many overseas companies entering the US are unfamiliar with our crowded market and the complex, stringent requirements of the governing IP bodies here. Rose skillfully guides them in navigating these potentially treacherous waters. In addition, Rose handles issues brought by firm clients The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which work to safeguard US and worldwide quality and accreditation standards.
Rose’s clients benefit from her sharp writing and legal analysis skills, which she honed years ago as Articles Editor on New York University’s Law Review. Early in her career she received rigorous training in intellectual property litigation while working at noted New York law firms Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP and Fross Zelnick Lehrman & Zissu, P.C.
