Hello! I am Nicole Schaefer, an Oregon attorney who loves working with creative business owners and content creators to ensure protection of your brand and content.
As a small business owner myself, I know what it’s like out there. I do everything for my business- marketing, answering phone calls, doing the legal stuff, etc. I don’t do accounting though. I know my weaknesses (also I went to law school so I wouldn’t have to do math).
As business owners, we have so much to think about. That’s why my goal is to prevent issues before they occur. Putting off getting contracts in place, registering your business, or protecting your intellectual property can turn into a big problem. It’s also something you shouldn’t have to worry about. You should be focusing on your business.
My number one goal is to make all this legal stuff easy to understand. After you retain me, I will guide you through protecting your brand (trademark), what you create (copyright), and your business assets (business formations and contracts).
