Jamie Shelden Esq.

Lisa Kain, Paralegal Specialist



Jamie Shelden is an intellectual property, litigation and licensing specialist. She has an extensive background counseling clients on a broad range of IP issues, including providing opinions as to the availability and registerability of trademarks and copyrights, coordinating U.S. and international filings and litigation, policing and enforcing trademark rights worldwide, and advising clients on a wide variety of internet, advertising and domain name issues.  She has written numerous articles on recent developments in trademark, internet and domain name law.

While a lawyer at Cooley Godward, she represented clients in retail (online and bricks & mortar), computer hardware/software, biotechnology, and telecommunications. Jamie oversaw and coordinated worldwide trademark filings for nVidia, Intel, SPARC International/Sun Microsystems and Consolidated Freightways.

She also managed trademark enforcement for nationwide retailers Hot Topic, Charlotte Russe and Lucy.com, and assisted clients such as MP3.com in developing and implementing in-house educational seminars emphasizing the proper use of trademarks and diligent enforcement of rights. Jamie also worked at the German law firm Norton Rose in Cologne, German, and directly with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and the Office of Harmonization of the Internal Market (European Trademark Office).  Jamie received her Doctor of Laws from the University of the Pacific (UOP), McGeorge School of Law, and her Bachelors in Music Management from the UOP Conservatory of Music. In 2003 she also received her Diploma in International Legal Studies through the University of Salzburg and UOP, focusing on European Union law and Community and International Trademark registration and enforcement. 

When not practicing law, Jamie spends her free time hang gliding.  She has been flying for the last 18 years and has participated in many competitions at the national and world level. With the German Women's Team, she won a gold medal in the Women's World Championships held in Sigilo, Italy this past summer. In addition, in 2002 Jamie set two women's world records for hang gliding distance and was the Women's National Rigid Wing Champion for several years running. She has her instructor and tandem pilot ratings and enjoys taking family and friends for recreational flights.


Lisa Kain's experience in the Information Technology world made her a perfect fit as our Paralegal Specialist. She spent many years consulting in the Washington, DC area for companies such as AOL, GE, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (back in the pre-toxic-debt days) as a data warehousing programmer and project management expert. With her intensive data mining and reporting experience she digs deep to present thorough, well-designed trademark searches. Jamie and Lisa first met on tow - Jamie in her hang glider, Lisa in the tow plane. An FAA licensed pilot since 1991 and a hang glider pilot since 2001, Lisa admits a preference for powered aircraft (especially the ones that fly upside down) but will take to the sky however she can. Currently a full-time pilot, Lisa is ready for a return to the left-brained world and is studying for her Law School Admission Test.
