“Holly brings a well-rounded patent litigation skillset to the IP litigation group,” said Woody Jameson, partner and chair of the firm’s Intellectual Property Practice Group. “We are confident that she will be a critical value add to our work with existing clients of the firm, and that the firm will be able to support her own clients in all aspects of IP litigation.”
