I joined Sunstein in 2007 because I wanted to live and work in Boston and I wanted a law firm that was dedicated to having a world-class trademark practice. My colleagues at Sunstein have always offered me the support and the freedom to build my practice in trademark law in a way that was consistent with my individual goals as a practitioner. I can think of no better place to be an attorney than here at this firm in this city at this time.
