2018 was a breakout year for Hawkins IP™. We experienced incredible growth, worked with amazing entrepreneurs to grow their brands, and truly came into our own as a practice. With that success also came a wealth of amazing opportunities, one of which I’ve decided to pursue with the full extent of my efforts and attention. Starting December 10th, I will begin my new role as Trademark Corporate Counsel for the Harley-Davidson Motor Company®. My new role will encompass facilitating the maintenance, enforcement, and expansion of the brand’s global trademark portfolio.
This means that Hawkins IP, the trademark law firm that I started in 2014 to help entrepreneurs build and protect their brands, will be closing its doors December 2018. The firm is still operational and will continue to provide service to our current roster of clients to finalize all ongoing projects. However, we will not be taking on any new clients.
It has truly been one of the great joys of my life to work with so many amazing entrepreneurs and creators. Although Hawkins IP the law firm is saying goodbye, the essence of the firm and its commitment to guiding entrepreneurs through the journey of building a brand will live on as our site will be revamped and serve as an online guide to trademarks for entrepreneurs. Join our mailing list to stay in the loop and be the first to receive exclusive content when we re-launch our site.
Stay tuned . . .
