What do you focus on?

I focus on representing employers and other entities in commercial litigation, employment law, and other business related disputes.

What do you see on the horizon?

The rapidly changing technological landscape is having an enormous impact on both intellectual property and privacy interests. Courts depend on well-versed advocates to understand the technology and explain its potential impact. For example, the increased use of social media presents unique issues especially as it pertains to discovery, data mining, and retailer use of copyrightable customer photos and other private information that we provide in our daily lives.


Fara is a recent graduate of Villanova University School of Law where she pursued a concentration in Intellectual Property. In law school, Fara was Co-President of the Intellectual Property Society and the Jewish Law Students Association. She was also selected to be a research assistant for her intellectual property professor. Prior to joining the Firm, Fara was a judicial law clerk for the Honorable Judge Lois H. Goodman of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey. During her clerkship, she researched legal issues in civil and criminal matters, drafted legal opinions and memoranda, and participated in settlement and discovery conferences.

Before law school, Fara worked for a non-profit biospecimen procurement company. Her responsibilities included operation, recruitment and maintenance of an international genetics registry and repository. She also provided support around all aspects of the development and maintenance of partnerships, including the establishment of procurement protocols, data collection and analysis, and project management.
