Blue Filament Expands, Relocates in Birmingham


Published:

BIRMINGHAM — After a year in business, Blue Filament Intellectual Property LLC has outgrown its original location and will be moving to allow for continued expansion as the firm evolves.

The firm has moved to 450 North Old Woodward in Birmingham, a short distance up the road from its original Birmingham location. The firm expects its expansion to continue through year-end and into 2013.

Blue Filament, founded in September 2011 by attorney Mary Margaret O’Donnell, who specializes in intellectual property, including trademarks, copyrights, domain names, brand protection, brand management and enforcement, risk assessment, Trademark Trial and Appeal Board proceedings and dispute resolution. The firm offers services to clients throughout the United States and internationally through an established network of attorneys.

 “In creating the firm, I sought to break away from the traditional legal model and offer clients unparalleled service on a lean platform, resulting in quality-focused work instead of quantity-focused billing," O'Donnell says. "Clearly it’s working. This approach is attractive both to clients and law professionals. Our model allows us to offer a fun and energized work environment with no geographical restraints.”

O’Donnell has more than a decade of experience working both in general practice firms and intellectual property boutique firms, and she and her team have prosecuted and managed thousands of trademarks throughout the world. Before founding Blue Filament, O’Donnell co-chaired the Trademark Group at the intellectual property firm of Rader Fishman & Grauer in Bloomfield Hills, and prior to that handled commercial litigation, intellectual property, trade secret and product liability matters at the Detroit-based general practice firm Miller, Canfield, Paddock, & Stone. 

O’Donnell of Royal Oak, and mother of three, received a LLM in Intellectual Property from the Université Bordeaux IV in Bordeaux, France, her Juris Doctor from Wayne State University Law School in Detroit, her bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, and also completed political science and law programs in Aix-en-Provence, France and Shanghai, China.
