The National Law Journal’s “Intellectual Property Trailblazers” list recognizes individuals that continue to make their mark in various aspects of legal work in the areas of patent, copyright, trademark and trade secret law.

In addition to her law practice, Mankey serves on the Board of Female Executives in Media and Entertainment, and is the vice chair of the Association of Media and Entertainment Counsel’s Women Who Lead Board, and the vice chair of the Board of Directors of The Industry, a Los Angeles-based modern opera company.
