How I represent clients at Schwabe

I am dedicated to pursuing my clients’ legal interests and safeguarding their intellectual property rights. By helping my clients through the full gamut of intellectual property issues, I am able to provide strategic advice regarding trademark registration and enforcement; copyright protection and enforcement; trade secret disputes; internet domain name disputes; licensing agreements; intellectual property transactions; and intellectual property litigation.

In law school, I worked as a Law Clerk for the Center for Food Safety, where I gained practical experience in legal research and writing. I was also the Associate Editor of Lewis & Clark Law School’s Environmental Law Review and the Fundraising Committee Chair of the Public Interest Law Project.

I worked at Schwabe as a Summer Associate in 2019.
