Wide-ranging experience to meet client needs

Rachel focuses her practice on intellectual property litigation, particularly patent litigation; identifying and drafting on litigation and intellectual prosecution matters in copyright, trademark and false advertising; and due diligence reviews and drafting agreements related to corporate intellectual property transactions.

Prior to joining Katten, Rachel broadened her legal research skills as executive technical editor of Harvard Journal of Law & Gender and senior article editor of Harvard Law & Policy Review. Rachel honed her written and oral advocacy skills in Harvard Law's Ames Moot Court competition, in which her competition team advanced to quarterfinal oral arguments. During law school, she conducted research and interviews with Professor Susan Cole and other student advocates, centering on foster care issues in Massachusetts. This work shaped Rachel's focus on innovative legal solutions for clients and her attention to detail.

Rachel focused her coursework on litigation and public interest matters, serving as a clinical extern to both EdLaw Project, a legal nonprofit providing representation to Massachusetts schoolchildren in special education and school discipline matters, and the Federal Public Defender's capital habeas unit in Kansas City, Missouri, gaining federal appellate experience while representing clients sentenced to the death penalty. Her student practice group work provided advocacy experience, particularly her experience representing incarcerated people in Massachusetts state prisons for their parole hearings. This dedication to public service was honored by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court in 2021 when Rachel was named to the Pro Bono Honor Roll.
