“We are thrilled to have Heather joining us to lead our trademark practice. Intellectual property in general, and trademark protection and enforcement specifically, have always been vitally important to our firm’s practice.

Heather has been recognized as a leading trademark lawyer by her peers and featured in nationally syndicated press for her expertise. She is vice chair of the California Lawyers Association Intellectual Property Section. Heather is a frequent speaker and writer on IP, Internet, tech and privacy issues, and has consistently been named one of Thomson Reuters’ Super Lawyers Rising Stars.
