She serves as lead trial and appellate counsel on behalf of high-profile companies in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries. Lisa is a seasoned and versatile litigator having tried high-stakes cases in federal courts across the country and the International Trade Commission, argued before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), and the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals. She has significant expertise guiding companies through patent challenges under the Hatch-Waxman Act and Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act (BPCIA).

She was named one of the "Top 250 Women in IP" by Managing Intellectual Property each year since the list’s inception in 2013 and was named a leading lawyer in Who’s Who Legal: Patents 2016 and 2017.

She was named a "Life Sciences Star" and an "IP Star" by the Legal Media Group, which noted that "Lisa is professional, intelligent, people savvy, tough when need be, and has a great command of the applicable law." Lisa was nominated in 2014 as "Hatch-Waxman Litigator of the Year" by the LMG Life Sciences Awards. In addition, she has been recognized in the area of patent litigation by the Legal 500. Her recent victory at the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals in Biogen IDEC, Inc. and Genentech v.
