Years of experience resolving the many legal issues faced by sellers on

Focus on running your business and leave the legal issues to me.  If other merchants are: 

  • Selling different products on your listings;
  • Selling below MAP or unauthorized;
  • Using your brand or images without your permission;
  • Hijacking your ASINs; or
  • If you have account or ASIN suspensions -

I'm here to help.  I handle these and many other typical issues every day and succeed where others fail.

More About Richard D. Margiano

Educational Background and Work Experience

​​​Because I had the highest grades in my class I was the only student in my class to win a full academic scholarship and to “grade on” to the prestigious Law Review at St. John’s University School of Law in New York City. 

Since 1993, I have worked on only patent, trademark, and copyright law, I am not a generalist.

After law school I joined a prestigious international law firm in New York City, White & Case, LLP, where I worked with some of the top e-commerce attorneys in the U.S. on many high value transactional and litigation matters representing large multinational corporations.
