A Paragraph Describing Your Professional Background: Before pursuing a legal career, Natalie spent several years in the microbiology department at Evanston Hospital where she conducted comparative research studies, performed quality control testing, and worked on state-of-the-art medical device technology. After doing a swift 180 and finding law as her true calling, Natalie focused her efforts into intellectual property. While working with Advitam IP, she has gained experience in trademark litigation, copyright infringement, and other IP-related disputes.

A Paragraph Describing Your Interests When You Aren’t Billing or Blogging:
When Natalie is not busy working or entertaining her cat, she loves traveling and seeing the world. A big foodie and avid theater-nerd – she can also be found tasting new cuisines, seeing what is showing on Chicago’s Broadway stage, or binging a season of Doctor Who.
Best thing about being a lawyer: Learning something new every single day. Intellectual property is always changing and whether it is a unique case, a groundbreaking decision, or a new client – there is always something left to learn.
