Areas of Focus
Pat Hatry’s ability to solve difficult problems for major advertising agencies and brands built Davis+Gilbert’s intellectual property and litigation practices into what they are today. Throughout her dynamic career, clients from ABC to Meredith Publishing, Slim-Fast, Weight Watchers and many others have relied on her experience, tenacity and focused approach to get the job done.
Pat quickly expanded her early career focus on advertising and federal food, drug and cosmetics law to litigation and trademark matters. As the firm’s first female partner, she skillfully defended clients against high-stakes intellectual property and false advertising claims, and vigorously pursued their interests in and out of court. Pat currently serves in a counseling and case diagnostics role, where her experience and perspective are invaluable assets to client teams.
Also devoted to pro bono efforts, her activities include representing many artists in trust and estate, and trademark matters for the Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts (VLA). Among others, Pat represents the Humane Society of New York in a wide variety of legal matters.
Known for her legal abilities, Pat has been appointed and has served as both a member and an official referee of the Disciplinary Committee for the New York Supreme Court First Department Appellate Division.
