Please join us in welcoming our new attorney, Kristyn C. Webb. Kristyn advises clients on various aspects of intellectual property law. Her practice includes litigation of patent, trademark, trade secret, and copyright matters and all facets of trademark and copyright portfolio management, including trademark clearance searches, U.S. and foreign trademark prosecution and copyright registration.
Before joining Fishman Stewart, Kristyn clerked for Justice Kurtis T. Wilder at the Michigan Supreme Court and for Judge Michael J. Riordan at the Michigan Court of Appeals. After graduating magna cum laude from Loyola New Orleans College of Law, she became a member of the Louisiana State Bar and the State Bar of Michigan. Her published academic articles include, “Issue Preclusion Prohibits a ‘Second Bite of the Apple’ But Offers Opponent a Third Bite Instead,” which was awarded the 2016 Ladas Memorial Award by the International Trademark Association. Additionally, her comment titled, “Products Liability and Autonomous Vehicles: Who’s Driving Whom?” won first prize in the 2017 Klau Writing Competition and is published in the Richmond Journal of Law and Technology. These papers were also recognized by the Loyola Law Review as the 2016-2017 Best Casenote and Best Comment—marking the only time that a single student has won both awards.
We are excited to have Kristyn on our team and our clients can expect another strong practitioner to represent their best interests.
