Twomey Latham Sponsors Breakfast Forum With Sheriff Errol Toulon

On Friday, September 7th, LIMBA hosted a breakfast forum with Suffolk County Sheriff Errol Toulon, which was co-sponsored by Twomey Latham.  Partners Reza Ebrahimi, Bryan Van Cott and Patrick Fife, and Senior Associate Craig Handler attended the event.


Sheriff Toulon discussed his background in law enforcement, handling the prison population and Governor Cuomo’s “Raise the Age” program.  One of his goals as Sheriff is to reach out to as many children in the County as possible so that he can help address issues like drugs, gangs, crime and bullying, which will prevent our youth from embarking on a life of crime.  Twomey Latham regularly works with the Sheriff’s Office on behalf of its clients, as the Sheriff’s Civil Enforcement Bureau is the enforcement arm of the civil courts, and it handles property executions, income executions, warrants of eviction and orders of seizure.

Creativity & The Law: How Copyright Laws Protect Your Work

HAH – K. Dalli July Article

For many people involved in creative pursuits, knowing how to protect the work is important.  Although it may seem daunting, the good news is that it’s really a lot simpler than it might first appear.

For starters, the way in which copyright protection is secured is often misunderstood. No publication or registration or other action in the U.S. Copyright Office is required to secure a copyright. While obtaining federal copyright registration affords certain additional rights, and is a good idea, there are state common laws that can provide protection without registration.

In order to develop an understanding of the relevant law, it is important to understand what a copyright is. Copyright is a form of protection provided to the authors of “original works,” including pictorial, graphic, sculptural works, both published and unpublished. The copyright protects the form of expression rather than the subject matter.
