Wendy Heilbut Named Partner of Jayaram Law

This is a very big day for our firm.  For the past 10 years, I’ve been the only partner at Jayaram Law.  But today that changes.

We are proud and grateful to call Wendy Heilbut a partner today.  She brings an energy, intellect, and ambition that embraces the ethos of our firm.  She’s a champion for female founders, an advocate for innovative companies, and an advisor to lawyers in house. She’s a mentor, a counselor, and a leader.

Over the past two years, Wendy has become an integral part of our team.  She’s collaborated with me on trademark cases in New York, counseled clients on their robust global trademark portfolios, and guided entrepreneurs through difficult situations.  Wendy does all of this with an eternally positive approach that’s both measured and creative.

Thing is, this is just the beginning.  With Wendy leading the charge in New York, we are well positioned to take our growth to the next level.  We are so happy to have her on board, and the firm is lucky to have her as a partner.

But don’t take my word for it, here is what some of our clients have to say about her:

“Wendy’s business-focused multinational intellectual property experience and knowledge is a tremendous asset as we continue to grow strategically.  She proactively addresses legal matters that help protect the Ankura brand and IP globally.  She is a legal leader with outstanding judgment and is a great addition to the Jayaram practice.”  
— Chérie Schaible, General Counsel, Ankura Consulting

“Working with Wendy has been very productive. Her attention to detail, care of her client and willingness to go above and beyond really made me and my cause feel valued and important. I would recommend to anyone.”  
— Rebecca Minkoff, Entrepreneur and Founder, Female Founder Collective

“Both my co-founder and I felt exceptionally fortunate to work with Wendy Heilbut and Jayaram Law during a period of critical restructuring, growth and acquisition for our company. Wendy is not only intelligent, creative and supportive, she also brings a heart-forward and strategic understanding to every step of the process. What we’ve come to understand is that having the right legal support is integral to the cornerstone of any business. If you’re lucky enough to build that cornerstone with someone who shares in your vision, champions women and believes in the ability for business to do more and be better, then you’ll come out ahead. Wendy delivers all of these elements and continues to be an important part of our team.”  
— Allison Rapson, Co-Founder + Chief Creative Officer, We are the XX; Founding Partner, The XX House

“Working with Wendy and her team has far surpassed any other working relationship I have had with other legal teams and law firms. Every call feels personal, insightful, forward thinking. Since Wendy’s knowledge of the business and political landscape is so keen she is always one step ahead, especially when my company ventures into uncharted waters.” 
— Alli DiVincenzo, Founder, Flair Friends, Roselicious, AlliQ Design  

Congrats Wendy,
