IP Ones to Watch 2022: MIP recognises Frederick Braunstein at TaskRabbit
Frederick Braunstein is a senior counsel at TaskRabbit in the US
Frederick Braunstein has been included in this year’s list for his exceptional ability to devise and execute winning strategies from briefing to trial.
He has been described as a human encyclopedia by his nominator, who says: “Fredrick is one of the most outstanding lawyers I have worked with in my career.”
In his role as a senior counsel at online marketplace TaskRabbit, Braunstein manages the company’s litigation and advises the business on a wide range of areas, including intellectual property.
Before joining TaskRabbit in March 2022, Braunstein worked as a commercial litigator at a few different New York law firms for about eight years.
He worked mainly on soft IP-focused lawsuits and represented several celebrities as a litigator. He was, in fact, the lead counsel for American rapper 50 Cent in a copyright and right of publicity suit.
He has also handled patent cases in the past, and worked on a COVID drug dispute shortly before his in-house move.
“IP issues are, of course, critically important to a broad spectrum of businesses around the world,” Braunstein tells Managing IP.
“I look forward to continuing my work in the IP sector while furthering my professional growth as an in-house attorney.”
