Blackburn has 25 years of experience representing clients in employment, intellectual property and business cases. She has experience as lead counsel in jury trials in both state and federal courts involving an array of employment issues, trademark infringement, copyright infringement and trade secret claims. She has litigated restrictive covenants in several courts throughout the country. In 2009, Blackburn received the “Most Influential Women in Business" Award in the Executive category from the Charleston Regional Business Journal.
