Gibbons P.C. has announced that Wendy R. Stein has joined the firm’s Intellectual Property Department as Counsel.

Ms. Stein rejoins the firm after managing her own law firm devoted to IP and complex litigation, including data privacy and security matters arising out of data incursions. She brings nearly a dozen years of experience in patent enforcement litigation, and litigation, transactional and counseling experience in the fields of trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets.

Ms. Stein’s patent litigation experience cuts across several industries, including pharmaceuticals, GPS technologies, packaging and data transmission. Drawing upon her law degree and masters in public health, Ms. Stein has many years of Hatch-Waxman and related FDA regulatory experience. She has also litigated trademark infringement matters in federal courts and before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. Ms. Stein has a particular experience in the area of trademark counterfeiting, and has worked with federal agencies and law enforcement to help clients stop the sale and distribution of counterfeit goods.

“Ms. Stein’s return to Gibbons reinforces the firm’s commitment to offering our clients a deep and versatile bench in all disciplines of IP litigation, as well as data security matters,” says David E. De Lorenzi, Chair of the Gibbons Intellectual Property Department. “We are delighted to welcome Wendy back to the firm.”

Ms. Stein was previously an associate at Gibbons and at Frommer, Lawrence & Haug in New York. She earned her J.D. from Fordham University School of Law, where she served as Notes and Articles Editor of the Fordham Intellectual Property Media & Entertainment Law Journal. Before law school, Ms. Stein obtained her M.P.H. from Yale University School of Public Health, where she focused on health policy issues, and her B.A., magna cum laude, from Brandeis University.

She is a member of the New Jersey and New York bars and is admitted to practice before the United States District Courts for the District of New Jersey and the Southern, Eastern and Northern Districts of New York.
