Bio

Sheri represents clients in a range of federal and state litigation matters. Self-taught in web design, she blends her technological know-how with experience in civil and criminal practice in federal and state courts, including as a law clerk in federal district and circuit courts. Her clients range from technology, social media, and gaming companies, to global retail and manufacturing businesses.

On the counseling side, Sheri partners with clients to meet their compliance and transactional needs. She advises business on navigating U.S. and international regulations (e.g., GDPR, COPPA, CCPA), including in updating privacy practices and policies and negotiating data transfer agreements.  She also works with financial institutions to harness the power of alternative data while mitigating risk and maintaining best practices. She is a Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP/US).

Prior to ZwillGen, Sheri clerked on the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and District Court for the District of New Jersey. There, she handled a variety of civil and criminal matters, such as interpretive questions of first impression, constitutional appeals, and criminal fraud prosecutions. She also worked in the Privacy, Cybersecurity, and Consumer Protection group at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher where she represented clients on data, privacy, copyright, and trademark issues. Representative matters include advising on the use of IoT and big data, litigating a trademark dispute in the Eastern District of Virginia’s “rocket docket,” and counseling on Facebook’s 2019 consent decree.

Sheri obtained a J.D. cum laude from Harvard Law School where she interned at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society and taught copyright law as a fellow in CopyrightX. Her work on big data is published in the Harvard Journal of Law & Technology. Before law school, she worked at Google responding to legal requests for user data.

Outside of the office, Sheri enjoys film photography, ballet, and training her puppy.
