Graciela Gomez Cowger & Victoria Tullett
Graciela Gomez Cowger | CEO | Schwabe Williamson & Wyatt
As Chief Executive Officer at Schwabe, Graciela Gomez Cowger focuses on keeping clients at the center of what they do, leveraging her training as an engineer to deliver efficiencies to clients and processes, and bringing diversity of thought to a historically slow-changing industry.
She practiced as an intellectual property attorney for over 20 years, helping individuals and companies protect innovations in technology and healthcare and build enduring brands. As an IP lawyer, she experienced the rapid rate of change in technology and the ever-increasing flow of data and information. We have never been more interconnected than we are now. She is passionate about finding strategies to help their clients adapt to the ways that these rapid changes impact the markets in which they operate.
Before joining Schwabe, she served as managing partner at StoFoCo LLP, a firm she founded and managed with two other partners. Prior to becoming a lawyer, she was a design and manufacturing engineer for Hewlett-Packard Co. in San Diego. That experience instilled in her a lifelong interest in innovation and process efficiencies and metrics.
