As a business major trained in marketing, Laura started at Merchant & Gould hoping to eventually move into the marketing department, but instead she discovered a passion for trademarks and branding on the legal side. She spends her days managing trademark files, communicating with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, reporting to clients, and serving as the firm's annuity specialist, working with clients, foreign associates, and the firm's vendor to process annuity payments.
Laura joined Merchant & Gould in 2004. She enjoys working with her co-workers and attorneys, and she thrives on being as efficient as possible in her work.
Laura spends many of her off hours with her new puppy, as well as traveling and spending time on the water, at both warm beaches and the cool lakes of Minnesota.
