The law firm of Adams and Reese further enhanced its intellectual property team as IP litigator Maia T. Woodhouse joined the firm’s Nashville office. Woodhouse is a member of the firm’s well-established global intellectual property practice, focusing on trademark, patent, trade dress, trade secret and copyright disputes.

Woodhouse has extensive experience practicing in federal courts across the country and before the United States Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.

“Maia is a superb young IP litigator,” said Gif Thornton, managing partner of Adams and Reese. “She makes our strong intellectual property practice even stronger. We welcome her to the team.”
