United States Press release - People April 2023

Stephanie DeBrow, a partner in the firm's Austin and New York offices, has been named a 2023 Woman Worth Watching in STEM by Profiles in Diversity Journal.

The publication selected 34 women from across the country who have distinguished themselves in leadership and commitment to mentorship in STEM fields.

"We are proud and honored to feature impressive women in STEM who have distinguished themselves through hard work, determination and no small amount of persistence," said Profiles in Diversity Journal publisher James R. Rector. "Each year, the honorees in this category continue to outdo themselves, proving that the sky's the limit for women in these traditionally male dominated fields and for the young, bright and curious women who are considering entering the ranks of STEM."

DeBrow, a member of the intellectual property litigation team, is a mechanical engineer turned lawyer with a passion for problem solving. She is a staunch advocate for not only the next generation of female lawyers, but also the next generation of female engineers and scientists. As an IP litigator, having a STEM background enables her to understand and help protect her clients' investments in complex technologies.

DeBrow has represented clients in a broad range of technological fields, including wired and wireless networking, network security, telecommunications, Internet and e-commerce systems, distributed computing systems, oil and gas tools and systems, manufacturing systems and FinTech. She has handled cases in federal district courts across the country and has also briefed and argued numerous patent appeals in the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

The winners of the Women Worth Watching in STEM Award will be profiled in the magazine's upcoming issue.

Profiles in Diversity Journal is a quarterly publication dedicated to "promoting and advancing diversity, inclusion and equity in the corporate, government, nonprofit, STEM and higher education sectors."
