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 technology clients in a broad range of litigation matters and counsels businesses on data privacy, alternative data, blockchain, third-party data request, and gaming issues. Self-taught in web design, she blends technological know-how with federal and state court experience, including as a law clerk in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. She has defended clients in VPPA, wiretapping, data misappropriation, blockchain, ECPA, copyright/DMCA, and trademark disputes.

Sheri also has substantial experience counseling clients on a variety of privacy and data matters, including compliance with CCPA, CPRA, other state privacy laws, VPPA, Copyright Act/DMCA, ECPA, and federal and state gambling laws. She regularly drafts and reviews privacy policies and terms of use for risk and compliance. And she works extensively with financial services clients to harness the power of alternative data while mitigating risk, maintaining best practices, and conducting due diligence of data.

Prior to ZwillGen, Sheri clerked on the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey and the U.S. 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 large 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 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.
