Maynard’s Sasha Rao, Chair of the IP Practice, has received a series of awards in 2019 recognizing her leadership in the national intellectual property community.

Following on the heels of the NLJ award, Sasha was selected by the Daily Journal, the largest legal newspaper in California, for a series of three awards. She was recognized in April for Top Intellectual Property Lawyers in California, in May as one of the Top Women Lawyers, and in June as one of the Top Artificial Intelligence Lawyers.

Her legal subject matter expertise includes regulatory, policy, intellectual property, data rights, and legal strategy.
