Sydney K. Hecimovich


Sydney’s practices encompass all aspects of IP litigation, with an emphasis on trademark and patent litigation. While her legal education and practice has focused primarily on intellectual property, Sydney has an interest in supporting new ventures and the development of emerging organizations by working with them to create non-disclosure agreements, licensing agreements, trademark registrations, incorporation documents, as well as other IP protection strategies.

Before joining Maschoff Brennan, Sydney was a law clerk at another Utah intellectual property firm. There she assisted in trademark and trade dress litigation by researching legal issues, drafting motions, and helping in discovery practices.

In law school, Sydney served in many roles that led to her holistic approach to intellectual property issues. In her second and third years of law school, she served as a research fellow. Her first year as a research fellow, she worked with a University of Utah professor in researching intellectual property issues. Through this, Sydney gained knowledge on international intellectual property practices and learned about standardization organizations in both the pharmaceutical and semiconductor fields. In her second year as a research fellow, Sydney worked with the University of Utah Office of VP research. Her research focused on data privacy and Title IX policy work. In addition to being a research fellow, Sydney worked as a legal extern with a global computer software company. She assisted intellectual property counsel by reviewing its extensive patent portfolio, providing litigation support, and conducting licensing reviews.

Before law school, Sydney was at the University of Wisconsin, where she studied biology and criminal justice. Outside of work, Sydney enjoys walking or hiking with her dog, crushing her friends at game night, or paddleboarding.
