Protecting Your Intellectual Property Overseas 

Some companies mistakenly believe that registration in their home country protects their intellectual property (IP) overseas.  Not true.  So what can you do to protect your IP when you do business in other countries?  Monika Jaensson of Dinsmore & Shohl will walk you through best practices for making sure that you and your company are protected when you venture outside the U.S. 

Monika Jaensson is an attorney at law in the Intellectual Property Department of Dinsmore & Shohl, LLP in Charleston, WV.  For more than 20 years Monika has represented businesses and individuals in intellectual property matters before the US Patent and Trademark Office and the US Copyright Office. While she is experienced in trademark and copyright law, she particularly enjoys helping innovators strategically value and globally protect their proprietary developments.

Over her career Monika has represented clients in the coal and natural gas industries, defense contractors, medical equipment industry, and bioenergy. She has also represented clients in obtaining over two hundred federal and foreign trademark registrations, including critical registrations for MedExpress Urgent Care, Alpha Natural Resources, Aplicare (now owned by Clorox), and Fast Fusion.
