Since joining Murtha in 2017, Elizabeth has helped clients from a variety of industries obtain, protect and monetize their IP rights; shield their data from breaches and cyberattacks; and comply with data privacy and security requirements. 

Elizabeth’s comprehensive knowledge of U.S. patent prosecution allows her to effectively advocate for her clients in prosecution and appeal proceedings at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

The successful transaction, which garnered significant publicity, resulted in heightened awareness of the smaller company.

In the privacy and cybersecurity space, Elizabeth provides skilled counsel to clients on how to access, collect, store, protect and transfer electronic data. She holds the Certified Information Privacy Professional – U.S. private-sector (CIPP/US) credential awarded by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) after demonstrating her mastery of jurisdictional laws, regulations, enforcement models and legal requirements for handling and transferring data.
