Eckert Seamans welcomes member Christina D. Frangiosa to its Philadelphia office. She counsels clients across various industries about intellectual property and technology law. Her combined litigation and transactional practice concentrates on copyright and trademark advisory services (search, applications, and use), counterfeiting, infringement, unfair competition, false advertising, trade secrets, licensing, and policy development.
“We are thrilled to welcome Christina Frangiosa to our IP practice,” says Roberta Jacobs-Meadway, co-chair of the firm’s Intellectual Property Group. “She is a seasoned, dynamic and highly skilled lawyer with a well-deserved reputation as a leader in the IP bar. She brings to Eckert her depth of experience and continues our expansion of this firm’s capabilities in offering clients comprehensive services in the IP sphere, including counseling, prosecution, licensing, litigation and portfolio management, both domestic and foreign.”
Frangiosa’s experience ranges from educating clients about protecting their copyright, trademark and trade secret rights, to negotiating agreements to protect these rights, and finally, to litigating and resolving their enforcement claims or defending against claims filed by others. She has appeared in state and federal courts on behalf of her clients and represents them in trademark applications filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and in opposition and cancellation proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB). Her clients have included accounting service companies, advertising companies, authors, computer software developers, consulting firms, construction and building companies, educational organizations, entertainment companies and personalities, entrepreneurs, legal and medical professionals, manufacturers, music groups, nonprofit organizations, retail establishments, service companies, and website developers.
Frangiosa is also very active in the legal community, serving in many key leadership roles of the American Bar Association Section of Intellectual Property Law, providing legal commentary on IP-related issues in the mainstream media, authoring articles, leading CLE sessions, and most notably, serving as the publisher of the Privacy and IP Law Blog, which addresses recent developments in trademark, copyright, computer, data security, and privacy law.
Frangiosa earned her J.D., cum laude, in 1997 from Temple University School of Law, where she served as executive editor of the Temple Law Review. She earned her B.A. in 1990 from American University.
