She enjoys being an advisor to clients when they need assistance in identifying, protecting, and leveraging their IP. Kirby is a registered patent attorney and founder of Kirby Drake Law PLLC in Dallas, Texas.

Serene Ateek | Jackson Walker

Serene Ateek is an associate in both Jackson Walker’s Corporate & Securities group and Entertainment, Digital & Sports group. Her practice focuses on assisting clients in an array of corporate transactions, including merger and acquisitions, startup counseling, private offerings, and general corporate governance matters. Regardless of the subject matter, Serene zealously negotiates commercial contracts and works hard to educate and empower her clients so they understand the protections and risks that live within each contract before they sign. Serene has helped fashion designers update their international retailer policies, social media influencers navigate the Federal Trade Commission’s Endorsement Guides, and publishing companies comply with automatic renewal laws across multiple states. She believes knowledge is power and wants her clients to have the knowledge it takes to best protect themselves.
