Jaime Rich Vining


Jaime Rich Vining practices law at the intersection of IP, Internet, and entertainment. Her focus is on trademark and copyright law as it pertains to the corporate world, entertainment, and the digital marketplace.

A Florida Bar-certified Intellectual Property attorney, Jaime counsels clients on the acquisition of new trademarks; conducts clearance investigations; files and prosecutes trademark applications in state, federal, and international jurisdictions; renders availability and infringement opinions; provides defense of related proceedings, such as oppositions and cancellations of registrations; files domain name enforcement actions under ICANN’s Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP); and provides legal advice regarding trademarks and related unfair competition issues. She has also acted as an expert witness in various trademark disputes.

Jaime also has extensive experience with international trademark and copyright protection laws. As the world has grown flat, Jaime assists multinational corporations, technology startups and entertainment companies in developing global IP portfolios and policies to secure, maintain, and enforce trademark rights worldwide. She has provided strategic trademark management services for companies in the apparel, technology, construction, entertainment, food and beverage products, travel, and hospitality industries, among others. Among her clients are famous bands and multimedia companies.

Jaime is actively involved in the IP legal community. She serves on the Pro Bono Committee for the International Trademark Association (INTA) and works on the trademark pro bono clearinghouse pilot program. Jaime also chairs the Intellectual Property Committee of the Dade County Bar Association, a position she has held since 2010. She is the brainchild behind Dade Legal Aid’s Patently Impossible Project, a fundraising event where teams compete to accurately assemble a patented invention while guests “bet” on their favorite contestant. The event has raised more than $150,000 since its inception.

Since 2010, Jaime has served as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Miami School of Law teaching trademark law and advanced trademark law. In 2017, she was invited to mentor and supervise students through Miami Law’s Startup Practicum, which was formally certified by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) so students can appear directly before the USPTO on behalf of their clients in trademark and patent applications. Miami Law is one of only twenty-six law schools in the nation, and the only one in the state of Florida, to receive this certification from the USPTO.

Respected by her peers, Jaime has been named a “Top Up and Comer” and “Rising Star” by Florida Trend’s Legal Elite, South Florida Legal Guide and Florida’s Super Lawyer Magazine. Jaime is AV-rated by Martindale-Hubbell and was named among the “Top 20 Professionals Under 40” by Brickell Magazine and “40 Under 40 Outstanding Lawyers of South Florida” by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. In addition, in 2016, she was honored by the Florida Bar with the Lynn Futch Most Productive Young Lawyer Award, which annually recognizes a young attorney who has worked most diligently in Bar activities and law-related public activities and has an excellent reputation for legal abilities and integrity. In 2017, Jaime was named an “On the Rise” award recipient by the Daily Business Review, selected as the 2017 “Up & Comer” for attorneys in Miami-Dade by South Florida Business & Wealth Magazine, and awarded the Volunteer Service Award for her pro bono service by the International Trademark Association. The Volunteer Service Award is presented annually to the most distinguished INTA volunteers for a career dedicated to IP protection and advancement, and whose contribution has advanced INTA’s mission and had a lasting impact on the Association.

In 2019, Jaime was selected for the Pro Bono Award for the Eleventh Judicial Circuit from the Florida Bar. Established in 1981, The Florida Bar President’s Pro Bono Service Awards are intended to encourage lawyers to volunteer free legal services to the poor by recognizing those who make public service commitments and to raise public awareness of the substantial volunteer services provided by Florida lawyers to those who cannot afford legal fees. Most recently, Jaime was honored by the First Annual Prestigious Women Awards by South Florida Business and Wealth. The awards recognize top leaders in the tri-county area who have created business success stories and provided leadership to women and the broader community.
