Fenwick trademark partner Karen Webb was named one of The Recorder’s Women Leaders in Tech Law for 2017.
Webb counsels established and startup companies on brand strategy and the protection of brand assets, including, brand creation, selection, protection, expansion and enforcement. She has extensive experience in the social media and internet space, both advising platforms in trademark matters and helping brand owners navigate social media.
Asked how she felt about the prospects for women in the tech industry after the events that rocked Silicon Valley this year, she told The Recorder, “More hopeful. By bringing these issues to light and encouraging discussion, we'll be able to discover and take continued steps toward propelling women to greater heights in the tech industry.”
