Susan Dierenfeldt-Troy has been practicing law for 17 years in the areas of intellectual property law (patents, trade secrets, trademarks, and copyrights) and business law. Since 2008 she has been with the law firm of Troy & Schwartz in Miami. After a long career in R&D in both academia and the corporate world, she went to law school after a merger and acquisition resulted in the closure of her company’s Miami location and she did not have the option to relocate. She chose her particular practice areas based on her prior professional background which has also enabled her to advise entrepreneurs and investors on product development challenges. She is a proud grandparent and pet parent. Today she will discuss some of the challenges with returning to school after a 20-year absence while also managing family challenges along the way and how these experiences have contributed to her perspective on the role of an attorney.
