Jill Sarnoff Riola specializes in U.S. and international intellectual property litigation and transactions, with particular expertise in complex intellectual property transfer and ownership matters, including research and development projects, joint venture agreements, merger and acquisition deals, and incubator technology licensing.

Previously in-house counsel with a Silicon Valley high-tech company and a New York City consumer products company, Ms. Riola uses that experience to work closely with her clients to understand a particular project in the context of their business plans and goals. That understanding also enables her to best assist them in developing appropriate short and long term intellectual property strategies, including development, protection, transfer or acquisition, and monetization of domestic and international intellectual property portfolios.

An experienced intellectual property litigation mediator, Ms. Riola is a member of the International Trademark Association Panel of Neutrals, the National Arbitration Forum PDDRP and RRDRP Panels, and the panel of certified mediators for the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida.

Ms. Riola is Board Certified in Intellectual Property Law by The Florida Bar.
