Shareholder

Becky Wilson helps businesses understand how to build their brands, protect their brands, and enforce their brands. She advises on new and ongoing branding initiatives and understands, from firsthand experience, the effort that goes into creating a successful business.

Becky devotes her practice to copyright protection and the prosecution of trademarks from inception to registration. Litigation is often a costly and time-consuming endeavor – sometimes unnecessarily – so she seeks to settle potential issues for her clients before that point. Protective by nature, Becky has successfully negotiated with some of the biggest names in industry on behalf of her smaller company clients.

While pursuing her undergraduate, MBA, and Juris Doctor degrees, Becky worked full-time for a Tier 1 automotive supplier in manufacturing, including working on the line, in the front office, and other roles – a testament to her personal and professional drive. While attending law school, she served as a liaison to The Dobrusin Law Firm, which continues to represent the company as a client. Becky gained insight into various aspects of supplier operations and learned, firsthand, the extent to which an organization must protect its ideas and other intellectual property assets.

Becky’s clientele is broad and not limited to the automotive industry. Her clients range from clothing designers to vodka and tequila manufacturers, small breweries and cannabis companies, and Fortune 500 medical device companies. Because Becky understands the many moving parts of a commercial operation, she can analyze and anticipate the risks inherent in doing business today.

Becky’s awareness and appreciation of distinct and often unique business needs and goals help her better understand and serve her clients. She feels successful when her clients realize their long- and short-term objectives. Appreciated for her honesty and direct communication style, Becky delivers practical and clear solutions that are not only grounded in the law but also actionable for her clients.

A lawyer who seeks to conserve and maximize her clients’ assets and resources, Becky is appreciated by clients for her cost-conscious approach to problem-solving. She wants her clients to understand the importance of the services she provides and takes the time to explain the legal process and how it applies to their distinct operations and industries.
