Hannah is a senior attorney with the firm’s business litigation group, where she focuses her practice on the growing areas of trade secrets and restrictive covenants law, employee mobility, and unfair competition.

She represents both corporate and individual clients on issues concerning the protection of trade secrets and enforceability of noncompete, nonsolicitation, and nondisclosure agreements. In this regard, she has successfully litigated cases on behalf of both employers and employees, including at the preliminary injunction stage. Hannah also represents clients in cases involving breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, and intra-corporate matters. She has successfully litigated in state and federal court, and obtained favorable results through mediation.

In 2014, she pioneered the Boston Bar Association’s Intellectual Property Basics Workshop series, a program that continues to this day. In 2016, she co-founded the Boston Associates’ Networking Group, an attorney networking group that she has since grown to over 70 members. Today, Hannah regularly publishes and speaks on the topics of trade secrets and restrictive covenants law, including through the American Intellectual Property Law Association, Boston Bar Association, Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly, and Practising Law Institute. Hannah also co-teaches Trade Secrets and Restrictive Covenants at Boston University School of Law.
