We recently sat down with Sheri and discussed her work, what drew her to ZwillGen, and what keeps her busy outside of the office. Read our conversation →

Sheri represents clients in a range of litigation matters and counsels businesses on compliance with privacy laws, alternative data, and gaming laws. Self-taught in web design, she blends technological know-how with experience in civil and criminal matters in federal and state courts, including as a law clerk in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. She has defended clients in privacy class actions, trademark and trade secrets suits, arbitrations, and government investigations.

On the counseling side, Sheri partners with clients to manage compliance with the GDPR, CCPA, COPPA, HIPAA, Copyright Act, DMCA, ECPA, and federal and state gambling laws, including by preparing legal opinions; crafting privacy policies and terms; and reviewing vendor contracts. She also works with financial services companies to harness the power of alternative data while mitigating risk and maintaining best practices.

Prior to ZwillGen, Sheri clerked on the District Court for the District of New Jersey and Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. There, she handled the full range of civil and criminal matters, including interpretive questions of first impression, constitutional appeals under the Commerce Clause, Second Amendment, and Fourth Amendment, and wire fraud and conspiracy prosecutions. Following law school, she worked at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher in the Privacy, Cybersecurity, and Consumer Protection group where she represented clients on data, copyright, and trademark issues. Representative matters included 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.
