Nationally known IP expert, litigator, joins Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek

MADISON – Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek, S.C., announced today that attorney Gina
Carter will head the intellectual property (IP) practice group in Madison
and the firm¹s intellectual property litigation team.

³Carter¹s litigation skills and recognized expertise in intellectual
property bring even greater depth to our growing IP practice group,² said
the firm¹s CEO Mark Miller. ³She understands emerging trends in IP law and
their implications to our clients, something critical to protecting their
intellectual property assets.²

³Gina is well-known and well-respected in the Madison legal community and
around the country,² said Jerard Jensen, managing partner of Whyte
Hirschboeck Dudek¹s Madison office. ³She brings the litigation skills and
knowledge of emerging technologies necessary to effectively enforce, protect
and defend our clients¹ IP rights.²

Carter counsels clients and litigates in the areas of intellectual property,
trademarks and advertising, e-business and information technology (IP),
unfair advertising, e-commerce, and international business.

³More and more today, corporations and other entities are realizing how
important it is to protect their IP rights and the revenue streams attached
to them,² said Carter. ³The challenge in a global economy is to create an IP
protection program that makes sense, given the client¹s goals and the fact
that other countries will be involved. It¹s not just for the United States
anymore. IP assets must be protected on an international scale. That¹s what
we¹re doing at Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek, and I¹m excited to be a part of it.²
