Transatlantic IP Attorney, New York and France

My name is Marie-Andrée Weiss and I am an attorney admitted in New York and in Strasbourg, France.

I practice intellectual property (copyright and trademark) law, privacy law, including internatinal data transfers, social media law, particularly social media marketing.

If you chose to retain me as an attorney, I will send you a detailed proposal, stating what I would do for you, how much work I anticipate will be necessary, and how much I will charge you for my services. My legal fees are quite reasonable.

If you accept this proposal and would like to hire me as an attorney, I will forward you an engagement letter that you will return to me after having signed it.

Once I become your attorney, I will return phone calls and emails within 24 hours, sooner than that in most cases.
