Sheri represents clients in a broad range of privacy, data, and technology matters, in both litigation disputes and counseling matters.

As a litigator, Sheri specializes in defending companies in privacy class actions brought under various federal and state statutes, including the VPPA, federal and state wiretapping laws (such as CIPA and WESCA), ECPA/SCA, Copyright Act/DMCA, and trademark laws. She has represented technology, retail, and blockchain companies in various consumer class action lawsuits and arbitrations. Before joining ZwillGen, Sheri clerked for the Honorable John M. Walker, Jr. in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and the Honorable Robert B. Kugler in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey. There, she handled the full range of civil and criminal matters, including statutory interpretation questions of first impression; constitutional appeals under the Commerce Clause, First Amendment, Second Amendment, and Fourth Amendment; and wire fraud and conspiracy matters.

Sheri also regularly counsels companies in navigating the quagmire of data and privacy compliance laws, including the CCPA/CPRA, BIPA, ECPA/SCA, and federal and state gambling laws. She specializes in advising clients on how to setup analytics and advertising technologies like pixels, session replay, and cookies to mitigate litigation risk. She also drafts and reviews privacy policies and terms of use. And she works extensively with financial services clients to harness the power of alternative data while reducing risk, maintaining best practices, and conducting due diligence of vendors.

After law school, Sheri worked as a litigator at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher in the Privacy, Cybersecurity, and Consumer Protection group where she represented clients on privacy, copyright, and trademark matters. Representative matters included advising on the use of IoT and big data, favorably resolving 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.
