Venable LLP is pleased to announce that Sarah S. Brooks has joined the firm’s Intellectual Property Litigation Practice as a partner in the Los Angeles office. Ms. Brooks’ practice focuses on litigating intellectual property disputes, including patent, trademark, trade secrets, antitrust, and copyright litigation.
Ms. Brooks counsels a broad range of companies, including consumer product, wireless technology, mechanical device, computer science, biotech, medical device, and toy and sporting companies. She achieves positive outcomes for clients in court with dispositive motions, motions in limine, and Markman hearings. She has also successfully tried cases in federal court, including obtaining a willful infringement jury verdict for a client in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.
“We are excited to welcome Sarah to the LA office. Her expertise within the biotech, technology, and medical device industries will be a great asset to our existing and growing client base,” said Mitchell Evall, partner-in-charge of the firm’s Los Angeles office.
Justin E. Pierce, chair of Venable’s Intellectual Property Division, said, “Sarah’s arrival will help to bolster our growing, nationally ranked Intellectual Property Litigation Practice and enhance the litigation solutions we provide our clients across a wide variety of technologies, especially in patent, trademark, and trade secret disputes.”
Commenting on her move to Venable, Ms. Brooks said, “I know two IP attorneys in Venable’s New York office very well and they have always spoken so highly of the firms’ collaboration and entrepreneurial spirit, which attracted me. I felt the move would mesh well with my own practice and that the current team would add great value to my clients.”
Ms. Brooks earned a J.D., magna cum laude, from Tulane University in 2005 and a B.S. in biology from Tufts University in 1999.
