Mayer Brown partner Lisa Ferri named “Woman Worth Watching” by Profiles in Diversity Journal

19 October 2016
Mayer Brown announced that partner and New York Intellectual Property practice leader Lisa Ferri was named a “Woman Worth Watching 2016” by Profiles in Diversity Journal. This annual recognition honors 158 women who “are a driving force in transforming change across the diversity and inclusion landscape,” the publication said. Honorees were nominated by colleagues and mentors.

Ms. Ferri, a litigator and trial attorney with 25 years of experience, represents global pharmaceutical companies in high-stakes patent litigation before various courts throughout the country. In Profiles in Diversity Journal, she said being a woman in her profession is both challenging and rewarding. “The field of patent litigation is very male dominated, so over the years I have often been the only woman in the conference room or the courtroom,” she told the publication. Highlighting her leadership, Profiles in Diversity Journal noted her “enviable record in hiring, retaining and promoting women, as Mayer Brown’s New York IP Group is 50 percent women, including the partners.”

In addition to serving as co-chair of both the firm’s global Women's Leadership Committee and the New York office’s Women’s Forum, Ms. Ferri is also an adjunct professor at Fordham University School of Law, where she teaches patent litigation.
