JFACEBOOK: Mendez, Hady [MC1992] “losing hair”




Hady Mendez – Franciscan Lay Missioner

I’ll let you guys in on a little secret. My hair is falling. More than usual. Not sure if it’s stress-related, my diet, or what. Needless to say it’s causing me a bit of worry.

In the meantime I went to jail today to get a trim and blow-out. When I was there the women were like “yeah you are def losing hair – you have less than you did a few months ago”. Ugh. The whole experience made me very upset and I started to cry. Right there in the jail.

What happened next was unexpected. One of the prisoners wiped away my tears. “No quiero que tu llores”, she said. She hugged me and held me until I stopped crying. Then she told me how much it hurt her to see me sad since I’m the one who always lifts her spirits when I visit.

She told me she would give me half the hair on her head when/if I ever needed it. Then we all laughed and hugged.

Thanks God.

Hope to stop the bleeding by taking some vitamin E but it’s good to know that my girls got my back.

Paz y bien

Good Afternoon All,

More to the point is our thanks to Fellow Jasper, Hady Mendez ‘ 92, Franciscan Lay Minister. Thank you Hady for doing God’s Work, for persevering where others will not tread, for keeping God’s Light Shining for “Your girls,” for bringing hope and a smile to those who may sometimes feel they don’t deserve it, for being there for them. It is special to know ” They have your Back.” Thank you Hady, we thank God for you, the Grace and strength He gives you to do His Work. May God continue to Bless you and those you minister to. Good Woman, Yourself.Thank you. God Bless.

JNEWS: Tracy, Colleen [MC1992] Intellectual Property partner Mayer Brown



Mayer Brown bolsters global IP practice with addition of Colleen Tracy as partner in New York

Jul 2, 2014


Mayer Brown announced that prominent patent litigator Colleen Tracy has joined the firm in New York as a partner in the Intellectual Property practice. Previously, she was a partner at Fitzpatrick, Cella, Harper & Scinto and served as that firm’s first female managing partner.

Ms. Tracy has extensive experience in all aspects of complex patent litigation in the pharmaceutical, chemical, biological, and biotechnological fields, representing industry leaders in litigations involving pharmaceutical compounds and compositions. Ms. Tracy also has extensive experience in litigating Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) cases brought under the Hatch-Waxman Act. Additionally, Ms. Tracy has conducted IP due diligence and has provided licensing and IP counsel to clients.

“Colleen’s significant successful first-chair trial experience for pharmaceutical and life sciences clients will bring additional depth and breadth to the firm’s growing IP practice,” said John Mancini, co-leader of the firm’s global Intellectual Property practice. “This is another exciting step in the strategic expansion of our global IP practice to better serve our clients in complex and high-stakes disputes.” Most recently, an 11-lawyer team led by partner Jamie Beaber joined the firm’s IP practice in DC and Chicago.

“Joining Mayer Brown was a natural next step for me in my career, given the firm’s strong capabilities in the life sciences arena and its commitment to growing its IP practice,” Ms. Tracy said. “I am thrilled to be part of such an accomplished and skilled group of IP professionals.”

Ms. Tracy is consistently recognized as a leading lawyer in IP litigation. In 2014 she was honored as an “IP Star” by Managing Intellectual Property. Previously, she was selected as an IP “Rising Star” by Law360 for her work fending off “generic challengers’ attempts to break patents for cutting-edge drugs and biotech treatments held by big-name clients” and was named a “Woman Worth Watching” by Profiles in Diversity Journal.

“Colleen’s impressive and widely acknowledged acumen in patent litigation will complement our existing robust global IP practice and provide significant value to our clients here and across our global network,” said Richard Spehr, Partner-in-Charge of Mayer Brown’s New York office.

As an active member of her community, Ms. Tracy is affiliated with several bar associations and industry organizations. Notably, she is on the board of advisors for the Women in Law Empowerment Forum and Gibbons Institute of Law, Science & Technology.

Ms. Tracy holds a JD from Seton Hall University and a BS in biology, cum laude, from Manhattan College.

Innovators at global multinationals, emerging growth companies and established mid-sized businesses all rely on Mayer Brown’s multi-disciplinary, full-service global IP practice to help protect, preserve and enforce their intellectual property assets. The practice has grown rapidly during the past three years—nearly doubling in size to approximately 100 lawyers in more than eight offices in the Americas, Europe and Asia.
