Sabrina Larson joins Coblentz from Morrison & Foerster LLP. She focuses on trademark and copyright clearance, prosecution, and enforcement, as well as complex litigation, with an emphasis on intellectual property and commercial litigation. Sabrina represents clients in domestic and international trademark clearance, prosecution, and enforcement, including in proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board and federal court.

Allison also negotiates and prepares employment-related agreements, drafts and updates employment policies and manuals, and conducts trainings on employment law compliance.

Her insights and advice are drawn from deep experience representing employers and executives in federal and state courts, arbitration forums, and before administrative agencies in the full range of employment areas, including single plaintiff, multi-plaintiff, and class action matters.
