Attorney Seep Paliwal’s Practice

Attorney Seep Paliwal is a senior associate in Stafford Rosenbaum LLP’s Madison office. Her practice focuses on intellectual property and entertainment law. Her IP work heavily involves copyright licensing and enforcement, trademark prosecution and protection, and trade secret enforcement for a range of industries, including those of musicians, authors, playwrights, screenwriters, artists, businesses, and nonprofits. Facilitating the negotiation and preparation of agreements among entities and individuals in these sectors represents a significant portion of Seep’s intellectual property work as well. In conjunction with her IP work, Seep has developed a practice working with technology based businesses, assisting clients with software licensing, privacy and data protection, and brand development.

When she’s not delving into IP work, Seep enjoys practicing general business law, both litigation and transactional work, in addition to condominium association matters. She also frequents work in probate, guardianship, and as a court-appointed guardian ad litem in family law matters.

Seep first gained experience with intellectual property law as a law student working with the UW-Madison Office of Legal Affairs as a trademark clerk. She also clerked with the USDA’s Forest Service, advising on issues such as pending patent prosecution, disputes of inventorship, and trademark infringement. Prior to joining Stafford Rosenbaum, she was a staff attorney with Community Justice, Inc.

Seep is fluent in English, Hindi, and Spanish.
