Successful, profitable businesses share certain characteristics: immediately recognizable brands, desirable products or services, and a strategic plan which minimizes legal risks. Amy B. Goldsmith, a Partner at Tarter Krinsky & Drogin LLP, provides practical legal advice and connections to grow clients’ businesses with an emphasis on intellectual property. She will advise you whether your trademark is available in the US and globally, if patents should be a part of your strategy, and if your design team’s new product shares too many features of the competition’s copyrighted bestseller. She will design contracts that make sense. If a dispute is on the horizon, she will be by your side until a fair resolution is reached.
Ms. Goldsmith protects the global interests of national and international clients in a variety of industries, including pet products, fashion, financial services, marketing automation, publishing, medical devices, and consumer and designer goods.
She is a director of the New York Women's Bar Association. She is also a member of the New York City and American Bar associations and is on the Board of Directors of Savvy Ladies, a non-profit whose mission is to educate women to be financially savvy.
She is a frequent lecturer on intellectual property topics for Lawline, and she is the author of several articles pertaining to intellectual property for Tableware Today magazine.
Ms. Goldsmith received her B.S. in Biology with a Concentration in Genetics and Development from Cornell University in 1982 and her J.D. cum laude from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in 1985.
Before joining Tarter Krinsky & Drogin, Ms. Goldsmith was a Partner at Gottlieb, Rackman & Reisman, P.C.
