Legal Services for the Creative Industries

About Me

I am a New York attorney, a lecturer and an editor. I combine my knowledge of the fashion industry with her degree in law. My main areas of expertise include intellectual property, licensing, social media, corporate and immigration law. I have gained professional experience while interning at Vogue, Coach, Thomson Reuters, Dentons, and working at The Fashion Law Group, Medenica Law and Schlam Stone & Dolan.

I create legal strategies and deliver solutions. I register trademarks; draft, review and negotiate various commercial agreements; and file visa applications. I advise startups, designers, artists and athletes, among others. My international exposure enables me to navigate today’s complex, legal environment. I lived in three countries, which provided me with the opportunity to interact with people from different places in the world, and which contributed to my better understanding of global economy.

I continue to advance my academic experience as a lecturer at the Fashion Institute of Technology (“FIT”) in the United States, and at the University of Ulster in the United Kingdom, among others. I served as a teaching assistant to Professor Barbara Kolsun, a co-author of a leading fashion law casebook, to Professor Sherry Jetter at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, and to Professor Guillermo Jimenez at FIT. I developed a Legal Summer Lab course at the Center for American Law Studies at the Faculty of Law and Administration at the University of Warsaw in Poland. I also lectured about licensing negotiations at the Faculty of Law and Administration at the University of Adam Mickiewicz in Poznan, Poland.

I founded Fashion Career Series, a platform designed to educate people about various career paths with the fashion business.

I am a Contributing Editor at Polish editions of Harper’s Bazaar, Elle and Glamour.
