My litigation experience comprises a full scope of services including, pre-filing investigations, discovery, depositions, motion practice, technical expert work, economic expert work, claim construction briefings and hearings, jury trial, Federal Circuit appeal, and Supreme Court writ of certiorari. In addition to litigations related to patent infringement, I also have experience in disputes related to licenses, audits, inventorship, trade secrets and antitrust. I have extensive experience representing clients in U.S. District Courts throughout the country, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and the U.S. International Trade Commission, as well as in Arbitration proceedings. My extensive patent litigation experience includes representing some of the nation’s largest companies in complex, multi-patent, cases.
Prior to joining the firm, I was a partner at Kirkland & Ellis LLP in Chicago. I earned my Juris Doctor at the University of Illinois, where I was an editor on the Illinois Law Review, and my Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan. I am also a member of Chicago Women in Intellectual Property (www.ChiWIP.org).
