Aryane Garansi focuses her practice on trademark, trade dress, copyright, and false advertising matters. She works with clients across a broad range of industries, including food and beverage, automobiles, luxury goods, fashion and apparel, and banking. Aryane assesses client risks in signing intellectual property licensing agreements and drafts contractual language to mitigate client liability. She also counsels clients concerning preliminary and full global trademark clearance searches of designs and phrases for use in connection with clients' goods and packaging and monitors potentially conflicting third-party marks. In addition, she provides copyright risk assessment of client fashion designs and works to register client designs at the U.S. Copyright Office.

Aryane has significant experience in preparing motions and documents for opposition and cancellation proceedings at the U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, as well as drafting complaints, preliminary injunctions, and temporary restraining orders in federal district court. She also drafts confidentiality agreements protecting client's trade secrets, UDRP complaints, copyright assignments, and substantive responses to Office Actions at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. She advises clients on the Federal Trade Commission's standards for substantiation of health claims, "Made in the USA" claims, guidance on native advertising on websites, and green claims for substantiation of "Organic" products as applied to client goods, packaging, and websites.

Aryane maintains an active pro bono practice. Her pro bono experience includes work with the D.C. Bar Advice & Referral Clinic and immigrant women seeking asylum from gender persecution.
