Background

Kerrijane John focuses on trademark clearance and prosecution, brand management, and intellectual property enforcement and litigation. Her day-to-day practice also includes strategic counseling, domain name disputes, and social media takedowns. Kerrijane’s clients span various industries and range from emerging artists and start-ups to multinational corporations. Since joining Fish & Richardson, Kerrijane has maintained a dedicated pro bono practice focused on asylum and human rights law, which has enabled her to have stand up experience in court, arguing before judges in both state and federal court. In 2018, Kerrijane was named one of KIND New York’s Attorneys of the Year for her work on a pro bono immigration case. While still a law student, Kerrijane interned at the Human Rights and Atrocity Prevention Clinic at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law and represented an asylum seeker and victims of genocide. Prior to law school, Kerrijane spent several years living in Beijing and Hong Kong, where she studied Mandarin and completed a Master of Laws. She has previously worked as a Summer Associate and Legal Intern at Fish.
