Stephanie Nelson is the newest Corporate Counsel at SquareTrade. Prior to her role as in-house counsel, Stephanie spent seven years working as a patent litigator. When asked about her transition from private practice to in-house, Stephanie notes that she enjoyed her patent practice, but was looking for a change in her day to day that would present different and unique opportunities. Stephanie enjoys the variety of work in her in-house counsel position, where she works on a broad scope of matters, including employment law, corporate governance, international law, negotiations, contracts, litigation, human resources, and data privacy, just to name a few. Stephanie did not hesitate to highlight how happy she is in her in-house counsel position, where she has found a challenging, yet steady and consistent work environment, and a great team.
