Member Bio
Kara Thorvaldsen practices in the areas of appellate work, professional liability, intellectual property, class action defense, and insurance and reinsurance defense. She has a track record of success in defending professionals, including attorneys, real estate agents and brokers, and insurance agents and brokers. In many cases, Kara has been able to obtain summary judgment or voluntary dismissals for her clients.

Kara has defended trademark, copyright, and unfair competition claims in the federal courts of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, including claims brought by a fortune 500 company against a small business, and an international trademark and copyright dispute. Kara achieved a dismissal of claims brought against an Internet security company that it had damaged a consumer’s home computer, defusing the threat of a consumer class action. Recently, Kara achieved a favorable resolution for an international client in which a number of plaintiff companies alleged that the client’s consumer review website was operated in a biased manner that favored certain businesses over theirs, resulting in reputational and financial harm to their businesses.

Kara has successfully handled appeals in the Massachusetts Court of Appeals and Supreme Judicial Court, and has argued before the First Circuit Court of Appeals.
