Since arriving at Pelican, Stacey McGuire has shown herself to have a unifying effect on the company’s employees, including the management team. She came to Pelican with nearly 10 years of transactional and litigation experience. Although there were some aspects of litigation McGuire enjoyed, she finds her work at Pelican more collaborative and less adversarial than her years as a litigator and is ideally suited to being Pelican’s in-house counsel — or as she calls herself, “The Queen of Triage.”
Pelican has a substantial intellectual property portfolio and annual revenues totaling $450 million, so the responsibility entrusted to its in-house legal counsel is varied and vast. Enforcement of Pelican’s patents and trademarks is a constant concern, and McGuire leads the efforts to protect its intellectual property. She also handles non-disclosure agreements, sales contracts, and various regulation and labeling requirements.
