Biography

Nate Garhart’s practice centers on protecting and maximizing the value of various forms of intellectual property, which often represent important assets and major revenue sources for organizations ranging from startups to public companies and nonprofits.

Nate’s work spans the gamut from selecting and registering trademarks, to protecting and enforcing copyrights, to strategic negotiation of licenses of all kinds. He also works with clients to minimize the legal risks related to their branding, advertising, and publicity strategies. Online, he counsels clients on internet issues and e-commerce topics, drafts website terms of use and privacy policies helping clients comply with Europe’s GDPR and California’s CCPA, and reviews customer communications for compliance with current laws.

Clients retain Nate because while he specializes in the protection of intellectual property, he considers the business as a whole. Registration, a demand letter, or a licensing agreement has no meaning or value without an understanding of the business goals of the owner. With this understanding, he is able to identify the right legal tool for the situation, and manage disputes and deals in the most strategically appropriate manner for a client.

In short, Nate delivers value to clients by focusing on results.
