Review Sarah Burns

About Me

Attorney Sarah Burns is an associate at Simmons Hanly Conroy LLC where she focuses her practice on complex intellectual property litigation involving patents, trademarks and copyrights. Her litigation experience stretches from pre-filing investigation, into trial and through the appeal process, and has resulted in millions of dollars in settlements for her clients and several licensing agreements.


Sarah has helped her clients, often inventors and small businesses, develop and maintain an equal foothold in the market place by enforcing her clients’ intellectual property rights against large companies that infringe those rights.
