What I Do: My main responsibilities focus on managing Taunton’s contracts, intellectual property, compliance with industry regulations, and legal disputes. I oversee the contract process to minimize risk for the company, protect editorial content, track advertiser and vendor relationships, monitor corporate obligations, and keep our insurance coverage up-to-date. To safeguard our intellectual property, I register and maintain Taunton’s copyrights and trademarks and advise on usage rights for the material we publish and license. Consulting with attorneys specializing in media, advertising, and consumer marketing, I evaluate company practices and procedures to ensure compliance with relevant laws and regulations. Should legal disputes arise, I coordinate with outside counsel for representation.
Interesting Fact About Me: I’ve lived in eight countries—in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, and I speak Italian and a little bit of Arabic.
What I’m Passionate About: I believe in doing my job thoroughly and with attention to detail while keeping in mind the big picture for any task’s purpose. I’m an avid fan of classical and jazz music, and I love visiting London and the English countryside.
What I Like About Working for Taunton: Working in-house as a legal professional for a company filled with creative and dedicated people is a joy for me, and I’m extremely proud of our vision: “… empowering creative people to lead more fulfilling, connected, and purposeful lives by getting better at the passions they pursue.”
