New York, NY, May 22, 2024—Tannenbaum Helpern is pleased to welcome partner Todd S. Sharinn as Chair of the Firm’s Intellectual Property practice and Bryan L. Wein as Associate. Todd’s decades-long Intellectual Property experience focuses on the worldwide registration, management, commercialization, protection, and enforcement of intellectual property rights.

Todd’s extensive IP litigation experience includes more than one hundred successful patent, trademark, and copyright infringement matters, representing clients across the pharmaceutical, medical device, electronics, cosmetics, heavy machinery, and consumer goods industries, among others.

Todd frequently works with U.S. government agencies, international law enforcement and other global organizations on behalf of his clients in connection with matters involving illicit trade activities, such as smuggling, parallel imports and the manufacture and sale of counterfeit goods, as well as the freezing and seizure of assets derived from such illegal activities.

In addition, Todd has considerable experience representing entities and individuals in the sports and entertainment industries. Specifically, he represents professional athletic leagues and teams, as well as media companies, producers, and distributors. Todd serves on The Bar Association for the City of New York’s Sports Law Executive committee and is a member of the Sports Lawyers Association.

Todd most recently served as head of the Intellectual Property department of a Connecticut-based law firm. Joining Todd from his previous firm is associate attorney Bryan Wein, who represents businesses in an array of intellectual property disputes including trademark, copyright, and trade secret litigation.

“Todd’s arrival aligns with Tannenbaum Helpern’s continued growth and expansion. We are thrilled to welcome Todd as partner and Chair of our Intellectual Property department,” said Andrew W. Singer, Managing Partner of Tannenbaum Helpern. “We believe Todd’s experience and sophisticated approach to Intellectual Property matters will add to our well-established IP group and strengthen our commitment to exceptional client service.”
