Lawdragon Profile: Danielle Tully

August 01, 2023

Lawdragon published a profile of partner Danielle Tully this week.

The profile dives into Tully’s childhood dream of practicing law and today’s reality of her work as a woman in the historically male dominated spaces of Intellectual property and patent law.

From mock trials in the 5th grade to now serving as a mentor in the Cadwalader sponsorship program, to blazing trails for women in law, Tully has always known she wanted to go into IP. She explains: “I have a biology degree and I always wanted to stay in the sciences but go into law. IP was the perfect marriage of my STEM background and my love of litigation.”

The profile – part feature and part Q&A – describes Tully’s role from start to finish in leading her team at Cadwalader to a huge victory in a post-trial win for client, AngioDynamics, in a long and labyrinthine patent dispute. She explains: “It's an important victory not only because we've finally been vindicated after all these years, but because AngioDynamics’s products remain available to people who need them the most.” AngioDynamics designs innovative and vital medical devices that elevate the standard of care for patients.

Tully says, “It's really a unique opportunity that allowed me to know the case as well as I do, and to have a say in the strategy that came from a place of really understanding the facts.”
