Francesca Germinario is an attorney at Warren Kash Warren.
Francesca represents clients in high stakes business litigation with a focus on patent, trade secret, copyright, and trademark matters. Francesca’s practice spans technology sectors; she has secured favorable outcomes for clients at various stages of litigation regarding claims on computer vision, wireless and networking, mobile device UI, camera, aerospace, network hardware, algorithm-driven medical monitoring devices, and various software applications.
Francesca was raised between the San Francisco Bay Area and the deserts of Arizona, so naturally she studied law at Oxford, where she learned enough slang to fluently watch British T.V. shows. When she's not six inches from her computer monitor, you can find Francesca savoring a glass of wine (preferably from Southern Rhone or Champagne), and serving as resident office DJ. Francesca is not only prepared, but excited for the robot revolution.
