Biography

Sherry is a member of Davis|Kuelthau’s Litigation Team practicing in the Green Bay office. Her practice primarily focuses on complex business litigation, with an emphasis on contract disputes, business torts, financial services litigation, real estate foreclosures and work-outs, and tax assessment appeals.

Sherry is also a member of the Intellectual Property Team representing clients in district courts across the country, as well as, in the Ninth and Federal Circuit Court of Appeals. She has litigated patent, trademark, copyright, unfair competition and trade secret cases in a wide variety of industries including consumer products, food products and software development. Notable among this experience is a successful patent jury trial verdict with a finding of inducement and willful infringement by the principal defendant, and the defeat of a preliminary injunction motion filed by an on the shelf competitor.

Sherry has also represented financial institutions in state and federal court on a variety of commercial lending disputes, including defense of counterclaims raised in response to foreclosure or deficiency actions, and disputes arising from insolvent borrowers, including proceedings in bankruptcy court. In addition, she has defended manufacturers in product liability actions involving personal injury, wrongful death and property damage.
