Evan represents a wide variety of businesses with operational matters, litigation, and regulatory compliance matters and is often the “first call” when clients need legal guidance. Evan works with owners, executives, and key employees to develop an effective strategy and team of players to accomplish the end goal.
Evan regularly advises businesses and individuals on civil litigation and risk mitigation strategies and has successfully represented business in courts throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey. He represents clients through all stages of litigation, including pre-trial and discovery proceedings, trials, mediation and arbitration, appeals, and administrative proceedings. Following the conclusion of litigation matters, Evan is often retained in an ongoing corporate capacity as general counsel and regularly advises clients on many matters related to contracts, employment, trade secrets, and regulatory oversight.
Evan also advises clients on intellectual property matters including trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, licensing, brand protection, and enforcement. He assists clients in developing their marketing and branding campaigns to identify their intellectual property assets to be protected and develops the most cost effective strategy to protect their portfolio of assets. Intellectual property assets require careful and constant attention to prevent third-party infringement, theft, and dilution and Evan works closely to develop and implement a trademark and copyright “watch” strategy to identify unauthorized uses and aggressively pursues equitable relief and damages. Evan’s intellectual property representation includes preliminary trademark search and due diligence, drafting and filing of trademark applications to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”), responses to USPTO Office Actions, prosecution and defense of trademark objection proceedings before the USPTO’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, and litigation in federal court.
Evan’s practice also includes representation of liquor licensees in various aspects of the alcohol industry. Evan represents retail licensees, manufacturers, and distributors with regard to operations and compliance, liquor license citations issued by the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement (BLCE), as well as transfer and renewal hearings before the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB). Representative liquor licensee clients include restaurants, taverns, breweries, wineries, distilleries, music venues, hotels, and management companies.
