Intellectual Property



Art and Fashion Law


Lowe & Associates handles intellectual property ("IP") matters involving in copyright, trademark, trade secrets, and idea theft. We not only secure our clients' intellectual property through filings with USCO (for copyrights) or USPTO (for trademarks), but we continue to protect their IP interests by pursuing infringers for monetary and/or declaratory judgments. We have settled cases against major studios, networks, and distribution companies on behalf of creators and screenwriters, and have been on the cutting edge of idea theft and copyright cases, both in the courtroom and the lecture hall.

Lowe & Associates has handled a wide range of cases involving both art and fashion. "Art law" involves the representation of clients in the business of art (including artists, dealers, and publishers), while "fashion law" involves the representation of clients in the textile, clothing, luxury goods, footwear, jewelry, modeling, and cosmetics industries. Lowe & Associates has been a staple in both, with expertise extending to licensing, distribution, franchising, and the securing and protecting of trademarks
