Krista Schwartz, a partner in the Intellectual Property Practice at Jones Day, was named to the 2017 Women Leaders in Tech Law list by The Recorder, a California legal newspaper published by American Lawyer Media, Inc.
Ms. Schwartz, who is based in Jones Day’s San Francisco Office, was among the 65 women named to the prestigious list that recognizes recent outstanding work by California-based women lawyers whose practices focus on technology companies and issues. Nominations were reviewed by The Recorder’s editorial team and winners included lawyers in corporate, private and non-profit practice. This marks the seventh year for the annual program.
Ms. Schwartz is a seasoned trial lawyer who litigates patent, copyright, trade secret, and complex contract cases throughout the United States. She has successfully tried both patent and copyright cases to verdict. Her cases involve complex technologies ranging from search engines, signal processing, simulation software, cellular devices, networks, EDA, and semiconductors, to medical devices.
