Genna is a multi-faceted professional, with small-business roots and a background in both hard science and research/writing. Inspired by the collaborative accomplishment of the Human Genome Project and impassioned by her mother’s struggle with Parkinson’s Disease in the US health care system, Genna has been fascinated with the potential of biotechnology and genetic research in treating and preventing illness, and focused on the potential for regulatory mechanisms to increase patient access to cutting-edge health care technology.

Genna took her first job at 16, working for small businesses, large corporations, and government agencies throughout high school and college. After completing her undergraduate degrees, Genna excelled for three years as the Quality Assurance/Quality Control Laboratory Technician for a biomedia processing facility in Lenexa, Kansas. She also spent a year in Yoshino Village, Tokushima, Japan, teaching English to junior high school students. In law school, Genna took all courses related to Health Law and Intellectual Property, and competed in the relevant moot court events. Additionally, she interned for the Washington State Attorney General’s Office Torts Division, and held two judicial clerkships: for the Honorable Annette S. Plese of the Spokane County Superior Court in Spokane, Washington, and for the Honorable William R. Fairchild of the Douglas County District Court in Lawrence, Kansas.

Returning to the Midwest, Genna chose the Chicago area to establish her legal career. She has fallen in love with the regional diversity, passion, and pride for supporting local businesses. She also discovered a need for affordable intellectual property and commercial legal services, specifically tailored to small business owners and individuals. On January 1st, 2013, Hibbs Law, LLC was formed.

Since formation, Hibbs Law, LLC has registered trademarks and copyrights, handled TTAB proceedings, assisted entrepreneurs through entity formation, drafted a range of agreements, advised small business owners in maintaining and enforcing their intellectual property, navigated FDA regulatory compliance for medical device manufacturers and HIPPA compliance for health care providers, litigated federal infringement actions for, negotiated settlements and licenses, and acquired registration as a patent attorney.
