Practice groupIntellectual Property

Sarah Benowich focuses her practice on wide-ranging litigation issues arising from efforts to register and enforce intellectual property and protect First Amendment rights. Sarah helps clients from different sectors, ranging from technology to media and luxury brands, protect some of their most valuable assets: intellectual property.

In addition to being a part of the Intellectual Property practice group, Sarah is a Hebrew-speaking member of the firm's Israel regional practice development team and Electronics and Consumer Appliances working group.

Sarah approaches her work with an inquisitive nature, focusing on the big picture while examining the crucial details. Sarah also leverages her background in industrial and labor relations and international affairs to give her a deeper understanding of the intersection of issues and interests that global clients face.

Sarah also maintains an active pro bono practice, including representing individuals seeking refugee status in the United States, formation and dissolution of local nonprofit organizations, and participating in the firm's flagship effort to empower women and girls by supporting key stakeholders in the Irish Government's Commission of Investigation into the Mother & Baby Homes.

As a student at NYU School of Law, Sarah participated in the Brennan Center's clinic studying Fourth and Fifth Amendment issues pertaining to police practices and use of social media. She also served as the president of the Law Students for Israel, organizing symposia and other events to connect law students with international law scholars and practitioners. While studying for her Master's in Diplomacy & National Security at Tel Aviv University, Sarah studied international relations focusing on cybersecurity, terrorism, and military ethics. Sarah studied Industrial and Labor Relations at Cornell University and served as a Public Service Center Scholar.
