Minneapolis-based Debrow was praised by brand owners as an adviser who “always finds the path which is best for her client’s business,” and “understands the corporate realities of budgets and can stay on target.” Debrow chairs the firm’s Intellectual Property, Technology & Privacy Practice Group and regularly assists clients with brand development and provides strategic advice in selecting and protecting trademarks domestically and internationally, including developing global filing strategies to maximize brand protection in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

Clients considered Minneapolis-based Dean Eyler “incredibly smart and efficient,” with complete capability to handle “difficult lawsuits.” As chair of Gray Plant Mooty’s Intellectual Property Litigation Practice Group, Eyler focuses his practice on complex commercial and intellectual property litigation and has substantial experience in litigating trademark, trade dress, patent infringement, patent ownership, copyright, trade secret, false advertising, and unfair competition cases. He also represents clients in a wide variety of commercial litigation, real estate-related disputes, and in appellate practice. Eyler received his J.D. from the University of Iowa.
Washington, D.C.-based Sheldon Klein was hailed as “proactive and professional in the prosecution of applications, negotiations, and also in enforcement and litigation matters,” who “always delivers.” Klein has over 30 years’ experience in counseling, portfolio management, litigation, licensing, and transactions in the areas of trademark, copyright, unfair competition, advertising law, and social media. He assists clients with a wide range of issues, including selection, clearance, and registration of new trademarks. Klein received his J.D. from George Washington University.
