Joanna Ardalan teaches Intellectual Property: Copyright online. She represents clients in intellectual property cases, including copyright, trademark, unfair competition, patent, trade secret, and idea theft cases for One LLP. Ardalan’s practice focuses on disputes in the entertainment, internet, biotechnology/pharmaceutical, and advertising sectors. Her work includes litigating cases in trial and appellate courts and in arbitrations through the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). She also advises clients on how to avoid litigation—and how best to position themselves in case litigation becomes inevitable.

Before Ardalan became an attorney, she was an entrepreneur. She founded and managed a music and software company, where she took her company’s products from initial conception to worldwide distribution. Ardalan understands the practical realities of business and the high stakes her clients face in litigation.

In addition to her teaching at USC Gould School of Law, Ardalan instructs litigating a copyright case at Loyola Law School. She serves on the Board of the Los Angeles Intellectual Property Law Association, for which she oversees both the copyright & trademark and public interest committees.

Re: Jean Lantz Reisz

Jean Reisz was quoted regarding Judge Dolly Gee and her rulings on immigration. "Her strong language was kind of a welcome reprieve in a climate where discretion's largely left to the attorney-general and not reviewed by the judiciary,” Reisz affirmed. “Most judges weren't taking those positions."
