Chelsea and Zeke Callanan

Thomaston — Zeke and Chelsea Callanan of Opticliff ESQ in Portland will be the featured speakers at the Saturday, April 6, meeting of Maine Media Women. Both have previously addressed MMW meetings, and their presentations have been popular and very informative. This time, they will focus on the topic Copyright and Trademark Law: Is Your Work Protected?

All MMW meetings are open to the public, and guests are always welcome. The April 6 meeting will be held at the American Legion Hall, 10 Watts Lane behind the downtown business block, beginning at 9:15 a.m. with coffee and networking. The program will follow at 10 a.m. Suggested donation is $3 for MMW members and $5 for guests.

Opticliff ESQ was founded by Zeke and features the tagline “A different kind of law firm” because its attorneys specialize in assisting sole proprietors and small businesses, especially those involving the creative arts and intellectual property. Chelsea joined the firm when the couple married, and both have been active for several years with Maine Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts, also based in Portland.
