Overview

Abigail Remore’s practice is dedicated to helping business owners and creatives protect their most valuable assets – their distinctive brands and their creative works.

Abby handles a wide range of intellectual property matters, including litigation, enforcement, counseling, licensing and prosecution of trademark and copyright applications. She has experience in a vast array of industries, including entertainment, music, sports, gaming, apparel, education, publishing, restaurant, food and beverage, hospitality, insurance, accounting, advertising, software and health care, and regularly works with non-profit organizations as well as governmental agencies and authorities. A substantial portion of Abigail’s practice involves litigation of trademark registration disputes before the Trademark Trial & Appeal Board of the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO). She also zealously advocates for her clients in civil cases, including trademark and trade dress infringement, copyright infringement and unfair competition matters and other disputes before the federal courts of New Jersey and New York and throughout the country.

Abby’s significant intellectual property prosecution experience includes conducting trademark clearance searches, successfully guiding trademark applications from initial application to registration, preparing responses to Office Actions and preparing renewal, maintenance and intent to use filings with the USPTO. She also regularly counsels clients regarding the proper protection of their intellectual property assets internationally and works closely with other members of the CSG Law trademark team and our various foreign associates to achieve that goal.

In addition, Abigail drafts and negotiates a wide range of corporate and intellectual property agreements, including assignment agreements, settlement agreements, consent agreements, co-existence agreements, publishing agreements, software end user license agreements, website terms of use, website privacy policies, license agreements, franchise agreements and work-for-hire agreements. She works closely with our corporate group in connection with the intellectual property aspects of M&A, joint venture, joint development and licensing transactions and assists with intellectual property due diligence for a wide variety of transactions. Abby also helps clients manage their existing intellectual property portfolios with an eye toward potential future transactions such as mergers, sales and acquisitions.

Abigail regularly presents on trademark and copyright law as well as related areas of practice – including the NCAA’s Name Image and Likeness Policy. Her recent speaking engagements include presentations before the Association of Corporate Counsel, the New Jersey State Bar Association, the New Jersey Women Lawyers Association, TRTCLE and Lawline.

Abby earned her J.D., cum laude, from Seton Hall University School of Law with a concentration in intellectual property law, where she was senior contributor and on the symposium committee for the Journal of Sports and Entertainment Law, served as the president of the Entertainment and Sports Law Society and participated in the International Intellectual Property Law summer study abroad program.
