Having been involved in anticounterfeiting and other intellectual property enforcement litigations since the start of her career, Heather McDonald has a depth and breadth of knowledge that few other lawyers possess. Her knowledge and experience is on ample display every time she works with clients to develop creative solutions to their problems. Heather is known for her innovation and historical knowledge in the industry, as there is hardly an aspect of anticounterfeiting litigation that Heather has not previously addressed or encountered. She delves into whatever work is required of her and does not hesitate to take action for her clients, whether it lie in first-hand participation in seizures of counterfeit goods or lobbying for legislation to help them fight the battles they face.
Heather is named in the World Trademark Review’s WTR 1000—The Definitive Guide to Trademark Legal Services, where she is referred to by one client as a lawyer whose “…name alone strikes fear in the hearts of counterfeiters.” She has received numerous awards from clients and law enforcement agencies for her service and commitment to protecting IP rights. Heather serves as the Deputy Litigation Coordinator for the firm's New York office.
