New Orleans is world-renowned for its distinctive music, Creole cuisine, unique dialects, and its annual celebrations and festivals, most notably Mardi Gras. The historic heart of the city is the French Quarter, known for its French and Spanish Creole architecture and vibrant nightlife along Bourbon Street.

Announcing our first keynote speaker!

LES is excited to announce that Alaina van Horn, Chief of the Intellectual Property Enforcement (IPE) Branch of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, will be one of our Keynote Speakers at the LES 2024 Annual Meeting!

Alaina supervises a team of attorneys and paralegals responsible for administering CBP’s nationwide intellectual property border enforcement program at the 328 U.S. ports of entry. Alaina will be discussing how the U.S. CBP IPE group protects & defends the IP rights of US companies and their products. The work that she and her team does is integral to protecting IP rights; as a result, this month they were awarded a Certificate of Merit from the World Customs Organization in honor of 2024 International Customs Day.
