Emily A. Danchuk, Esq.

Passion. Experience. Diligence.

Business + Intellectual Property Attorney

an unconventional lawyer 

While traditional attorneys focus on the financial bottom line in order to meet their billable benchmarks rather than their clients’ needs, the result is often mistrust and disconnect between client and lawyer.

With a reputation for honesty and practical legal guidance, my clients rely on me to protect their intellectual property and handle their legal matters without charging astronomical fees or creating unnecessary billables.  I strive to provide full resolution of issues at the most efficient cost possible.  My bottom line is development of client trust, not financial boon.

With over 14 years of experience handling copyright and trademark prosecution and litigation, infringement matters, and preparing business and licensing agreements, I’m able to confidently help my clients with their legal issues so that they are able to focus on innovation and growing their businesses –  in other words, to focus on what they do best.

... Emily came highly recommended and I am making the same recommendation today.

At the time I was introduced to her, I had very little direct experience with trademarks and trademarking. I needed a trademark attorney who would take a little time to not only execute searches and secure marks, but also to advise as to the best way to pursue or approach various situations and marks. In one tough situation, she brought us to a beneficial agreement vis-à-vis a very large competitor who had taken exception to one of our logo marks.

Emily always takes a partnership approach to my questions and opportunities and always provides excellent counsel. I find Emily to be accessible, professional, and very effective. She is diligent about follow-up, and treats our company resources (the costs of pursuing and securing marks) with great respect, as she would her own.

Emily Danchuk brings a tremendous amount value to our business and she is an essential part of our extended team.
