Forrest Firm’s Gravatt to Serve on Branding Panel at Charlotte’s Advent Coworking

The Forrest Firm’s Lyle Gravatt heads to Charlotte on May 18 to serve on a branding panel at uptown’s Advent Coworking.

The lunch-and-learn event on branding will take place on May 18 from 12-1pm at Advent Coworking, located on 933 Louise Avenue. Billed as the “Triple Threat Panel,” intellectual property attorney Gravatt will join Lisa Speer, strategist and creative director at Speer Creative Edge, and Matt Olin, copywriter and producer at Matt Olin Creative, as well as host of CreativeMornings CLT.

For the members-only event, the three guest professionals will focus on different aspects of the world of branding for young companies. The Forrest Firm’s Gravatt will focus his part of the discussion on brand protection via trademarks and intellectual property strategy, while Speer will speak to brand building and Olin on brand engagement.

Mr. Gravatt joined the Forrest Firm in January, assuming leadership of the firm’s intellectual property practice.  He focuses his practice on patents, trademarks and intellectual property licensing and agreements. His strategic perspectives and experience in a wide range of technologies allow clients to protect and monetize their intellectual property assets in coordination with their business’s goals. He provides end-to-end services, from competitive intelligence and portfolio reviews to filing and prosecuting applications for building value.
