Senior Corporate Counsel at Zoetis Inc
Before joining the legal trademark world, Jane Ungaro worked in advertising, which developed her empathy for marketers and their need for great branding.
For more than 25 years, Ms Ungaro worked first at Corsearch as a trademark researcher, which led her to attend law school. She then joined Amster, Rothstein & Ebenstein (AR&E) as a paralegal and later became an associate. At AR&E, Ms Ungaro worked with many different partners for a variety of clients with diverse issues in trademark searching and prosecution, as well as contentious IP matters.
She left AR&E for a global trademark portfolio role at Pfizer Inc, helping to manage the Pfizer trademark group through several restructurings, acquisitions and divestitures. Beginning in 2012, Ms Ungaro helped Pfizer to reorganise its animal health business into a standalone company called Zoetis which spun-off entirely from Pfizer in 2013. She is now chief counsel for global trademarks at Zoetis Inc – the world’s largest animal health company in Parsippany – with a small but excellent team. She has also recently taken on responsibility for managing legal operations for the Zoetis legal function.
Zoetis is a member of INTA and Ms Ungaro has participated in several committees over the years.
