In referring to this most recent honor, Lisa remarked, "I love the
practice of law, the challenge of intellectual property law in particular, and
working with very smart and caring colleagues. I've always wanted a career
where I work with people and work to help people. I have been inspired and
influenced by my mother, a very creative and caring person, and the many
influential mentors I've had during my career. Bob Kann, Managing Partner of
Sunstein said, "Lisa is a top-notch trial lawyer and brilliant intellectual
property tactician. She also makes time in her busy schedule to make
substantial contributions to our community. The Top Women of Law
