Stephen Lee has been with Target for nearly 15 years, where
his practice has covered the entire spectrum of I.P. matters, as he had been
responsible for all trademark, copyright and patent work. Particularly
rewarding is the fact that his team provides legal services and advice to
practically every business team within Target and has touched almost every one
of Target’s key strategic initiatives. He manages a team of 19 high-functioning
I.P. professionals, and he has first-hand experience leading his team through
the ups and downs of the retail landscape transformation.
For the eight years prior to joining Target, Stephen
practiced law as a partner at Fish & Richardson and as an associate at
Faegre & Benson both in Minneapolis. In private practice, Stephen’s
practice was equally diverse as it covered all aspects of I.P.: portfolio
maintenance, litigation, contract drafting and negotiation, and strategy and
Stephen is a proud graduate of the University of Texas where
he received both his B.A. and J.D. degrees. Stephen is married and has three
children, ages 12, 10 and 1.
