Get a 360-degree intellectual property review, and a solid legal plan for your growing business.
Whether you’re a new or established business owner, legal questions are going to start to weigh on you as you begin to grow.
- How can I figure out what to trademark or copyright?
- What’s the best way to prevent someone from stealing my content?
- How do I deal with copycats?
Let’s cross these worries off your to-do list and concentrate on building your business.
You’ve poured your heart and soul into creating amazing online content, videos, music, books, courses, images, art, music, software, or new technology.
And you’re wasting too much time searching the internet for answers to your copyright and trademark questions (that you aren’t even sure are right).
You need to step away from the keyboard and talk to an attorney who is the go-to intellectual property partner for creative and online businesses, and who can provide an easy-to-follow legal plan.
A Legal Road Map® session is the first step to get your business legally protected. This session is a great value if you’re just starting out, or need help with your established business.
Why we start with a Legal Road Map® Session
We want our clients to succeed, so we like for new clients to start with a Legal Road Map® session.
While our goal is to be your legal partner for the long-term, there is no ongoing commitment; after our session, you’ll have:
- Answers to the copyright and trademark questions that have been keeping you up at night
- New ideas, practical steps, and suggestions to use in reaching your goals
- A written Legal Road Map® Report, which includes a summary of the intellectual property in your business, copyright and trademark protections you may need, and my professional opinion on the best steps to reach your business goals, prioritized in order of importance.
During our Legal Road Map® session, we’ll work together to answer your intellectual property questions, help you figure out what you need to do to make more money, and strategize how to protect yourself, your content, and your business’s copyrights and trademarks, legally.Book a Legal Road Map® Session - $500.00
How a Legal Road Map® Session works:
You’ll send information about your business and your biggest copyright and trademark concerns to me before our session so that I can prepare and research any issues. If you have documents you’d like to discuss, you’ll also send them to me to review before our session.
Then, we’ll spend about an hour on the phone or Skype. You can ask me lots of questions and I’ll draw on my 13 years of experience working with the top creative business owners to answer them. Then, we’ll create a list of action items together that you can execute to take your business to the next level. You’ll feel confident that you’re making the right decisions for the future of your business. After our meeting, you’ll receive a written report with an intellectual property plan to implement to help you reach your big goals.Book a Legal Road Map® Session - $500.00
In a recent Legal Road Map® session with an online business owner, we tackled:
- dealing with copycats — people using her content without permission
- why website terms and conditions are a good idea to protect her copyrights, and what they should say
- how to protect her blog and e-course from being copied with copyright registration
- how to choose a great name for her business and protect her brand with trademark registration
- how to use other peoples’ images on her blog the right way
In just an hour, we not only answered the questions she had before the call, she also received a 360-degree review of intellectual property issues in her business. I pointed out legal holes she didn’t know about, and showed her how she could build value in her business by protecting her content. She finished with a legal plan and was clear on the next legal steps for her business.
And, when a publisher approached her to write a book a few months later, she already had a lawyer on her team she knew could help her navigate this new business opportunity.Book a Legal Road Map® Session - $500.00

Benefits of a Legal Road Map® session

You’ll find out whether you need to register the trademarks in your business or product names, slogan or tagline, or logo.
You’ll understand why registering the copyrights in your most valuable content early is critical, and which content is worth protecting with a copyright registration.
You’ll learn where the intellectual property is in your business, and how you can use it to make more money.
You’ll find out whether a licensing or certification program might allow you to grow your brand and reach more people, without spending more time on your business.
You’ll figure out the right way to use content you don’t own (movie quotes, song lyrics, music, images, and more).
You’ll have ideas about working with other creatives on new projects without putting your business’s intellectual property at risk.
You’ll be clear on what steps you need to take NOW to get your business’s intellectual property ducks in a row, and what steps can wait a bit.
You’ll be ready to respond to copycats the right way.
And you’ll have a creative lawyer on your team who already knows about your business, and is ready to help navigate new opportunities or solve problems.
