Biography 

Kirsten joined Hunt Pennington Kumar after working as a law clerk for the firm during her time in law school. During her time at the firm, she has gained valuable experience in all aspects of litigation, including pre-litigation negotiations, preliminary investigations, dispositive motion filings, discovery, expert designations, and settlement negotiations. She has also worked closely with the firm's partners on all sides of intellectual property law, from filing for provisional and nonprovisional patents and trademarks to protecting those rights or challenging the validity thereof in licensing infringement cases pending before federal court.

Kirsten brings a high level of organization, strong work ethic, and an eye for detail to the firm, in addition to her skills in research, drafting, and editing from her background in Journalism. She strives to maintain mutual respect and professionalism in her relationships with clients, colleagues, and adverse parties.

Before joining the firm, Kirsten was a judicial intern for the United Nations International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals, which performs the remaining functions of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda. There, she assisted in the Office of the Prosecutor's appellate review of individuals formerly tried for war crimes and crimes against humanity. Kirsten also previously interned for Refugee Services of Texas, a non-profit that provides pro bono and low bono legal services to refugees, asylees, and victims of human trafficking. There, she assisted in the Immigration Legal Services Program to provide clients with family reunification petitions, applications for permanent residency or naturalization, and applications for employment authorization.

In addition to her interest in assisting the firm's clients with strategically remedying their business or intellectual property disputes, Kirsten has a passion for international human rights law and international criminal law. She presently feeds this passion through her pro bono services and as a member of the Association of Young International Criminal Lawyers.
