Ms. Segal speaks and writes plain English with her clients. She communicates applicable rules, options and red flags clearly, efficiently and thoroughly, in terms a client can understand.
Ms. Segal is also a “problem-solver” whose goal for each client is to help create a solid legal core to strengthen and grow its business.

BUSINESS LAW; CONTRACTS
Ms. Segal assists early-stage clients with incorporations and the business launch process and established businesses with ongoing legal concerns. With substantial experience devoted to business arrangements and transactions, Ms. Segal has unique insight to capture the rights and responsibilities of her clients and other parties. She has drafted and negotiated thousands of legal documents over her career, ranging from one page to hundreds of pages.
Ms. Segal works with clients to create, review and improve their key documents. Clients may request a review of individual contracts or take a comprehensive review of some or all of their existing agreements to ensure that the provisions work together to achieve the client's goals and mitigate the relevant risks.
The range of agreements that Ms. Segal has tackled during her law career is both broad and deep, including shareholder agreements, stock purchase agreements, operating agreements, employment and severance agreements, consulting agreements, purchase-and-sale agreements, loan and security agreements, leases, licensing agreements, vendor agreements, customer agreements, non-compete and confidentiality agreements and other business law documents. She also has experience drafting essential internal corporate policies for businesses and non-profits.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY: TRADEMARKS
Ms. Segal assists trademark clients who wish to strengthen their intellectual property rights and avoid infringement claims. This often involves filing a federal trademark application with the USPTO. As many of her clients know, strong names and design elements are key to growing goodwill in their industry. A business name or logo is the “face” of a business – how clients locate and come to trust in a company or organization. Carefully choosing and diligently protecting the marks associated with a business or other creative enterprise is of utmost importance.
Whether a client is starting a business or non-profit, expanding or simply increasing its focus on the value of its intellectual property, Ms. Segal can assist with assessing and clearing a trade name, logo, slogan and other trademarks or service marks. She can also aid clients with a “likelihood of confusion” analysis against existing marks, evaluation of whether a mark would be strong or weak, trademark renewals and other matters.
Law Office of Anne Marie Segal is based in Stamford, Connecticut, on the top floor of the Marriott Building. Her office address is 243 Tresser Boulevard, 17th Floor, Stamford, CT 06901.
