At Suiter Swantz IP, we take great pride in providing our clients with the highest level of intellectual property representation and we recognize this would not be possible without our elite team of patent attorneys and staff. Each month we feature one of our team members and give you the opportunity to learn more about their experiences and background. This month it is our pleasure to introduce Linda Dammann.

Linda Dammann joined Suiter Swantz IP in 2017 as a paralegal for the Firm.  Linda has over 25 years of experience in Intellectual Property, specializing in trademarks.

Linda’s expertise includes conducting availability searches, filing and monitoring trademarks with the United States Patent and Trademark Office and in several foreign countries.

How did you get into IP?
I started my IP career as an IP secretary and then trained to become a paralegal. I’ve now worked in IP for over 20 years, specializing in trademarks. I find trademark work to be challenging and interesting, stretching me professionally.


What do you like most about working at Suiter Swantz?
I truly enjoy working in a smaller intellectual property firm, with supportive and knowledgeable colleagues.


Where did you grow up? 
I grew up in Manning, Iowa.  It is a small farming community about 90 miles northeast of Omaha.  My parents owned a feed and hatchery business that kept our family quite busy.  This is where my siblings and I learned the value of hard work and family support.


What do you do outside the office? 
Family is very important to me and I am very lucky to have my two children, Michael and Melissa, here in Omaha so family gatherings are quite often.  I keep busy by traveling with my husband of 47 years, golfing with my son, shopping at local boutiques with my daughter, and watching my two beautiful grandchildren.
