Elisabeth A.
Of Counsel


Over the past 25 years, as Internet access, computer technology, electronic commerce and social media outlets have dramatically changed the field of intellectual property law, Libby Langworthy has been working with her clients to acquire and protect their intellectual property assets. Her experience in this specialized area spans a range of services, including advising on IP aspects of transactions as well as clearance, prosecution, protection, licensing and enforcement of trademarks, copyrights, domains and other forms of intellectual property.

Libby represents clients in proceedings before U.S. administrative agencies and in the courts. Working with foreign counsel, Libby supervises foreign trademark registration and enforcement of client portfolios in every country of the world in which U.S. companies may lawfully conduct business. She works closely with Eversheds Sutherland (US)'s mergers and acquisitions team on intellectual property issues arising in domestic and transnational transactions.

Libby advises both large corporations and small businesses, and her diverse practice includes clients in financial services, banking, insurance, health care, energy, computers and software, automation and industrial manufacturing, construction materials, nuclear energy products and services, consumer products, carpets and floor coverings, beverage distribution, and textile research and technology, as well as trade associations, authors, schools and charitable institutions.
