Ms. Price extends Keystone’s mission to bring actual industry experience and the vanguard of academic approaches to litigation disputes through techniques that address: economics of competition in platform markets, advanced computer science tools to value innovation and large-scale consumer behavioral data analysis.

As Co-Chair of Keystone’s Economics and Digital Technology Expert Group, Ms. Price, a Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB) alumna, is among the foremost female principals to lead such a practice in the U.S. Her client successes have resulted in a significant increase in revenue for this business segment, which provides companies such as Facebook and Amazon with a comprehensive set of growth services ranging from defending Intellectual Property (IP) rights to damage assessment within an array of technology and social media industries, including software development platforms, open source, cloud-based software business models and digital real estate.

Judy Jennison, a Partner in Perkins Coie’s Intellectual Property practice and Chair of the firm’s Trade Secrets Group, said of Ms. Price, “I have worked with Sam for several years and am continually impressed with her ability to bring creative solutions to complex legal problems. Her deep familiarity with the technology industry, ability to leverage the Keystone network and commitment to client service are an invaluable combination.”

Keystone President Jeff Marowits adds, “Sam’s promotion is the result of stand-out work on some of the most high-profile, transformative matters within the technology industry. Sam has embraced and extended these values resulting in outsized growth for our business and our clients.”

“The Keystone executive team has been 100% committed to growing a pipeline of diverse leaders to lead the firm,” said Gabrielle Toledano, a Keystone Board Member and Chief People Officer, Tesla. “The recognition of Samantha Price’s strong contributions and leadership through her appointment to Partner reflects the fruits of this investment for Keystone and its clients.”
