Ellen is an excellent technical lawyer in a variety of IP and licensing fields, including mergers and acquisition. What distinguishes her is a very practical approach to transactions (she gets deals done for clients) and outstanding client service. Her experience as in-house counsel at Amazon.com has helped her to understand the practical implications of her legal advice. Ellen is also a terrific person to work with. She is an exceptional teacher, mentor, and recruiter. So many of her co-workers describe her as the "glue of the office".
Ellen has a keen business sense and practical approach to getting transactions done, whether licensing deals or small and large M&A transactions. I could not recommend her more highly.
Ellen is a highly skilled intellectual property and transactional lawyer. As someone who has worked with her on numerous matters, I've regularly seen her add significant value as a practical, business-minded deal lawyer and counselor. She's also got a keen sense of humor, which is always appreciated. I'd give her my highest endorsement.
