About Me

Shannon helps businesses protect their valuable intellectual property. She advises clients on the acquisition, protection and enforcement of intellectual property rights; and drafts and negotiates a wide range of license, development, manufacturing, acquisition and operational agreements. When clients face civil litigation, she advocates for their best interests, representing them in state and federal courts and in contested administrative proceedings before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
