Jan 10, 2022

With 2022 fast approaching, we’d like to take a moment to update you on a few developments that took place at Saunders & Silverstein in 2021.

We’ve Grown Again

We are pleased to announce that we have bolstered our growing team with the addition earlier this year of two new attorneys, Sarah Leighton and Chris Whalley, and two new paralegals, Kristy Corneau and Danielle Williams.

Sarah has joined our team as an associate attorney. She earned her J.D. from the University of New Hampshire Franklin Pierce School of Law in 2020. Chris is Of Counsel to Saunders & Silverstein and has been practicing in the field of trademark law for more than a decade. Chris was with Cantor Colburn LLP before joining our firm. Both Sarah and Chris advise clients on trademark clearance, enforcement, and prosecution matters.

Kristy is a seasoned trademark paralegal. Before joining Saunders & Silverstein, Kristy worked as a trademark paralegal and docket clerk at Grogan, Tuccillo & Vanderleeden, LLP for 15 years. Danielle most recently worked at Eversheds Sutherland LLP as a trademark paralegal. Both Kristy and Danielle have deep experience with trademark clearance, prosecution, and global portfolio management. Along with the rest of our team, they are committed to providing the level of professional service and personal relationships you have come to expect from Saunders & Silverstein.
