Lindsay Kelly '05 Named Assistant U.S. Attorney in Alexandria VA Cyber Unit

Lindsay A. Kelly, '05, has been named Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Cyber Unit for the Alexandria Division by Neil H. MacBride, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.

On Feb. 12, 2010, the Attorney General announced the formation of a new Department of Justice Task Force on Intellectual Property as part of a Department-wide initiative to confront the growing number of domestic and international intellectual property crimes. Included in the Department’s push to increase enforcement in this area is funding for additional prosecutors. Because of its established expertise in prosecuting intellectual property offenses, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia was selected to receive additional funds to increase its cyber unit and bring more cases in this area.

A former associate at the Washington, D.C., office of Kellogg, Huber, Hansen, Todd, Evans, & Figel, PLLC, Kelly handled complex civil litigation – including intellectual property matters. She clerked for the Honorable Paul R. Michel, the Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and is admitted to the bar for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Kelly received her juris doctorate from the University of Chicago Law School, her master of business administration from the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business, and bachelors’ degrees in biology and history from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
