In a previous life, I worked for nearly 10 years in the legal industry, with my last purely legal role being lead attorney for an intellectual property litigation firm. I started my career at one of the top intellectual property management companies in the world that served to protect and defend the biggest brands to ever walk this earth. After a come-to-Jesus moment, I found my true passion lies in the management of brands, their communication plans, and maintaining their reputations over time. #fixer #crisis #reputation I currently lead IGNIS, a litigation communications and public relations consultancy and i write about reputation and image issues on my blog, “The Expert Opinion Giver” at brandinfringement.wordpress.
