As we have been receiving enough interest and client demands from Amazon Sellers, Lerman & Szlak is excited to announce our new initiative focused on improving the lives and businesses of Amazon Sellers, Amazon Sellers Legal.
Our Amazon Amazon Sellers team is comprised of experts in IP practice and the corporate law practice, who have successfully dealt with IP threats and enforcement throughout their careers in both the USA and Latin America as well as a wide array of complex, international corporate legal challenges. Expanding our scope to focus more on issues dealing with Amazon Sellers is a perfect fit for our law firm – and an even better fit for our clients.
Leading the Amazon Sellers practice with Lerman & Szlak will be the two founders of the firm, Celia Lerman and Gabriela Szlak. Lerman’s specialty in intellectual property and Szlak’s focus on corporate law provide the two halves of the firepower to deal with the complex issues that arise in dealing with Amazon Seller challenges.
