Mr Concannon focuses his practice on US and international trademark clearance, trademark portfolio management and protection and trademark and copyright licensing. He also drafts sophisticated commercial agreements and regularly provides advertising, unfair competition, consumer protection, internet and privacy law counselling. He represents companies in trademark and copyright dispute proceedings (including before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board), in domain name arbitration proceedings and in negotiating settlement agreements in these areas.
