Following the completion of his German law degree and German bar examination, he worked as Legal Counsel for an International Intellectual Property services company – initially, as part of the International Trademark Department and later on, he was given the opportunity to work as Country Manager..., responsible for the North American region, which prompted his relocation to the DC Metropolitan Area.

Subsequently, Farzad completed his LL.M. in US Intellectual Property Law at George Mason University – School of Law and was admitted to the New York Bar. During the LLM program Farzad refined his knowledge in domestic Trademark and Copyright Law through internships at the Center for Protection of Intellectual Property and an internship at the Trademark Practice Group of a large domestic IP law firm.
