We take risks, but make sure we really know our client's business."

Jennifer G. Stanley

Jennifer is a world class “primary care” advisor for intellectual property and commercial business transactional matters—a trusted counsellor to category-defining companies when technology outpaces innovation. Airbnb relied on Jennifer’s steady hand in drafting the company’s online terms, ensuring the success of its global expansion. Jennifer advised on key business and intellectual property issues for the international launch of Tencent’s games suite, guided Amazon through the development and launch of the Kindle app store, and she played such an integral role bringing “Titan Quest” to market that you’ll see her name in the game’s credits.

​Content creators from entertainment, influencers, and talent to advertising, e-commerce/retail, and VR/AR benefit from her creative approach to the law. Jennifer leverages 25 years of experience to help clients navigate copyright protection, strategy, and business model analysis and risk management. As a trusted advisor to both startups with new business models and public companies, she finds ways to apply existing law to new structures and technologies that lawmakers didn’t contemplate.

Jennifer is a member of Fenwick’s Executive Committee and Partner Compensation Committee. She is a member of the State Bar of California and a non-practicing member the Law Society of Ireland.
