Her clients value her focus on practical guidance that aligns with the client’s mission and business priorities. She helps protect valuable IP assets, including securing ownership, obtaining federal trademark and copyright registrations, negotiating favorable IP terms in agreements, and licensing IP to or from third parties. She regularly enforces her clients’ copyright and trademark rights against infringers, and uses tools gained over more than a decade of experience to address infringement and resolve IP disputes outside of court. Ali also assists with Digital Millennium Copyright Act compliance for both copyright owners and platform operators. 


Ali routinely handles contract matters related to her clients’ core business and operations, which includes reviewing and negotiating vendor contracts for clients procuring services and assisting service-provider clients with their customer contracts. Her experience includes preparing and negotiating licenses, development and service agreements, nondisclosure agreements, and most other agreements encountered in the course of doing business.

When she’s not helping her clients with their legal matters or volunteering, she can be found playing with her two daughters, rehearsing for an upcoming musical theater production, or chasing the squirrels out of her strawberries.
