While a lawyer at Cooley Godward, she represented clients in

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

also received her Diploma in International Legal Studies

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.
