Trademark & Copyright Attorney

Stephanie S. Spangler dedicates her practice to trademark and copyright matters. She has represented clients from startups to Fortune 100 companies in a variety of industries, including technology, food and beverage, e-commerce, apparel, jewelry, video games, film, and arts and entertainment. Stephanie routinely counsels clients on contentious and non-contentious intellectual property matters, focusing on domestic and international trademark prosecution, copyright and trademark enforcement, licensing, and right of publicity matters. She works with clients to find creative solutions for the selection, registration, use, and protection of their intellectual property rights. Stephanie advises clients on all phases of litigation, including pleadings, sophisticated fact and e-discovery, motion practice, argument, mediation, and trial. She appears in federal courts, the state courts of New York and California, and before the USPTO’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. She has represented clients in cases involving trademark and copyright infringement, false advertising, commercial disparagement, business torts, deceptive trade practices, Lanham Act claims, state and federal unfair competition laws, and other business disputes. Her experience on the litigation side of intellectual property matters has provided her with valuable insight that she leverages for her clients’ benefit in drafting licensing agreements, work-made-for-hire agreements, non-disclosure agreements, and co-existence agreements to reduce her clients’ risks. Stephanie is a member of the International Trademark Association (INTA), the Asian American Bar Association of New York (AABANY), and Cardozo Law School’s Black Asian Latino Law Students Association Alumni Group. She serves as a mentor to law school students through Cardozo Law School’s “Cardozo Connections” mentorship program. A co-author of the firm’s trademark, copyright, and unfair competition law blog, More Than Your Mark, Stephanie enjoys writing on the impact of trademark law on the sports, entertainment, and food and beverage industries. Prior to joining the firm, Stephanie practiced in litigation, including commercial, intellectual property, trade secret, unfair competition, product liability, toxic tort, and insurance coverage; and in transactional matters on behalf of entertainment companies, video game companies, and start-ups. During law school, Stephanie was an Articles Editor for the Cardozo Arts & Entertainment Law Journal.
