Stacy Boven is a privacy and technology attorney at Nixon Peabody who enjoys advising clients on protecting their intellectual property and litigating high-stakes commercial disputes.
I focus on maximizing value for my clients. By developing a deep understanding of my client’s industry and individual needs, I partner with companies to prevent litigation or swiftly resolve unavoidable disputes. Both before and during litigation, I am continuously seeking comprehensive solutions that will reduce costs and better protect my clients in the future. With extensive experience in navigating complex commercial matters for both plaintiffs and defendants, I built my practice by managing arduous multiparty disputes and streamlining the litigation, trial, and settlement processes.
I advise clients on protecting their intellectual property through invention assignments, NDAs, confidentiality and licensing agreements, etc. I also litigate intellectual property disputes, including trade secret misappropriation, trademark, copyright, and licensing disputes.
I work with a variety of clients on complex business litigations, including disputes over commercial contracts, licensing, corporate and fiduciary liability, partnership and shareholder issues, and business separations. Understanding the tension between the increasing demand for transparency and the value of privacy, I’ve assisted clients with trade secrets, non-competition agreements, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), and California’s Public Records Act matters as well. My experience ranges across a variety of industries, including gig economy technologies, consumer products, beverage and alcohol, higher education, solar, and green technologies.
My team and I frequently represent private owners, public entities, and contractors in construction disputes involving breach of contract, licensing issues, product defect, personal injury/workplace safety, governmental immunity, comparative fault, and negligence.
I represent corporate clients in critical state and federal appellate matters. I have prosecuted and defended against writ petitions and appeals across an array of practice areas, including immigration, insurance, transportation, and consumer product.
As litigation costs increase and trial timelines continue to expand, expect parties to rely more heavily on mediation, arbitration and other ADR. Clients need practical solutions that serve both immediate and long-term goals.
