Ulmer Grows in Chicago and Cleveland with Additions to IP and M&A Practices

Ulmer is pleased to announce the additions of two new associates who join the firm’s Chicago and Cleveland offices. Anisha Mehta joins the firm’s Intellectual Property Practice Group, while Alexander Koenig will be a member of the Mergers & Acquisitions Practice Group.

Most recently an associate with Niro McAndrews LLC in Chicago, Ms. Mehta has experience counseling clients on trademark and unfair competition matters, patent litigation, and copyright issues. She handles trademark clearance, prosecution, and portfolio maintenance for brand owners in multiple industries. Ms. Mehta has represented public and private companies in high-profile trademark and trade dress infringement cases, including the successful representation of a publicly traded client in a multi-million dollar jury trial.

She joins a highly sophisticated intellectual property practice that routinely handles complex, high-stakes matters for leading businesses and brands throughout the country. The group’s trademark and copyright litigation attorneys represent clients in federal court and the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Ulmer’s attorneys have extensive experience in enforcing trademark rights and defending against trademark infringement claims. Ulmer’s IP practitioners regularly handle matters involving traditional trademarks, such as word marks, slogans, and designs, as well as non-traditional marks including trade dress, color, and sound marks.

Ms. Mehta earned her B.A. from Kent State University and her J.D. from the John Marshall Law School in Chicago. She is fluent in Hindi.

Mr. Koenig focuses his practice on a wide range of corporate law issues, including mergers and acquisitions and capital markets and securities transactions. He has experience conducting due diligence, drafting ancillary documents, and preparing disclosure schedules. He has also assisted in the preparation of blue-sky and SEC filings.

Ulmer’s M&A Practice Group draws upon the experience of a highly-skilled group of transactional attorneys to accomplish their clients’ business objectives. From conceptualization to value creation to successful fruition, the group’s attorneys work closely with clients on all aspects of the transaction, helping them to identify new opportunities and then develop tailored strategies.

Mr. Koenig is a 2016 graduate of The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law. He earned his B.A., magna cum laude, from Ohio Northern University.
