Investing in an initial conversation with Francine BEFORE you venture into using or creating intellectual property can save you valuable time, energy, and money.

  • Will you hire employees to create your products or will you engage the services of independent contractors?
  • Should you spread out the creation of product over time, or is it best to produce everything at the outset?
  • What do you want your company brand to represent?
  • How will you protect that brand?
  • Will your trademarks and copyrights be registered and should they be?

Francine will help you answer these questions and more.
