Intellectual Property and Technology Lawyer

The intellectual property and technology practice group at Price Benowitz is led by veteran attorney Heidi Tandy, who wrote the first “Terms of Use” policy for The New York Times in 1995 and who has used her nearly twenty years of experience to hone her craft.

Experience Counts in Intellectual Property Law

Our clients benefit from our experience in a wide range of industries; from retail stores to large and small residential and leisure developments and properties, and from music to novels, and cosmetics to travel and event companies. We have worked with content creators, technology builders, individual business owners, and large corporations to successfully protect our clients’ copyrights and trademarks without overstepping into the Fair Use rights of third parties. Our practice group’s ability to serve all these needs is based in large part upon the significant success and experience of Ms. Tandy. She has long been an insightful voice on trademark, copyright, reputation, and cyberbullying issues, and has been quoted in Newsweek, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and a multitude of blogs and websites regarding trademark rights, copyright issues, the travel industry and creative technologies. In 2012 and 2014, she spoke at South By Southwest (SXSW) on fan creativity, where she focused on balancing the rights of all types of storytellers and creators. She speaks regularly at Women of Tomorrow events hosted at high schools and across South Florida, and writes about intellectual property matters on a featured tumblr blog.
