Areas of Expertise
My expert witness experience includes all brand identity, corporate identity, product design and packaging infringement issues.
My consulting experience includes hours of qualitative and quantitative consumer research on brand positioning, brand messaging and brand identity issues and I have a unique insight into the likelihood of confusion between brands and corporations.
My professional experience includes being Managing Partner of a respected brand identity design consultancy; as well has having been a Vice President of Marketing, and Senior Account Manager.
I have done extensive branding work in the Asian food category and across the instant noodle category with American brands, like Kraft. However, I have not worked in the Asian noodle category, nor do I have current market data of the Korean noodle market. Although, I am sure I can research that and get accurate data.
I have strong expertise in international marketing and distribution.

I have other case report examples to share and hope this prove the unique value I can provide this case.
