The approach offered by the Center is widely recognized as particularly appropriate for technology, entertainment and other disputes involving intellectual property.
Jeskie, co-chair of the Duane Morris Information Technology and Telecom practice group, has a diverse national practice focused on business and technology-based litigation, including intellectual property litigation, software litigation, e-commerce, and Internet law. She has served as a court-appointed Special Master in cases involving technology and e-discovery and is President of the International Technology Law Association (ITechLaw), Vice-Chair of the Philadelphia Bar Association's Business Law section, as well as chair of the firm's e-discovery committee.
