Wednesday, October 29, 2008
Wilmington, DE -- Fish & Richardson P.C. announced today that Tara D. Elliott has rejoined the firm’s growing Wilmington office as an associate in its Litigation Group. Ms. Elliott had been an associate in the Litigation Group at Fish before leaving to clerk for The Honorable Gregory M. Sleet, Chief Judge of the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware, and then for The Honorable Raymond C. Clevenger, Senior Circuit Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
"Tara joined us out of law school and was a valuable member of our IP practice in the Delaware Valley and nationally. We are very pleased that she is rejoining our litigation group after spending two years in these prestigious clerkships," said William Marsden, Managing Principal of Fish & Richardson’s Delaware office.
Ms. Elliott received her J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where she was a Senior Editor for the Journal of Constitutional Law, a member of the Moot Court Board, a member of Penn Law’s National Trial Team, and an American Intellectual Property Law Education Foundation Scholarship recipient. She received her Bachelor of Computer Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology. She is admitted to practice in Delaware, the District of Columbia, the United States District Court for the District of Delaware, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and registered to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Prior to attending law school, Ms. Elliott worked for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
