Elizabeth M. Sbardellati

Elizabeth (Liz) Sbardellati puts her experience in intellectual property law and litigation to work for companies and individuals that need to protect their brands, trademarks, copyrights, and related intellectual property.

Liz's practice includes performing clearance and due diligence in connection with trademarks and copyrights—including registration of the same, developing and executing strategies for brand enforcement, litigating and resolving disputes related to intellectual property infringement, and deal-making in connection with the monetization of her clients’ brands through the acquisition, sale and licensing of intellectual property.  Her practice also has a global reach. Liz works closely and collaboratively with legal counsel throughout the world to develop efficient and effective strategies for ensuring global protection of her clients’ brands and related intellectual property.

“It is important to stay vigilant,” says Liz. “I see myself as my clients’ eyes and ears. If I find an infringement of their rights, I do not hesitate to bring it forward immediately, along with an action plan for how to overcome it.”
