The team at Merchant & Gould are certainly happy the coin landed on law school for the Greensburg, Indiana, native. The Miami University (Ohio) and University of Minnesota graduate is among the Up & Coming Attorneys for 2019. During law school, a summer internship at Merchant & Gould working on intellectual property cases solidified both her career choice and her specialty.
“It’s fun,” she said. “I work with IP—patents, copyrights, and trademarks.”
Stradley also loves getting to forge her own practice. It’s a lesson learned from her mentors.
“They’ve shown me how to really be in control of how you want to develop and mold your practice,” she said. “To find a way to make it happen and take the initiative to create what you want.”
The approach seems to be working for Stradley, according to her nominators: “Paige is the epitome of a team player and her value to our firm is immeasurable, both as a leader within the firm and client counselor.”
When she’s not in the office, Stradley enjoys cheering on the University of Indiana Hoosiers and giving back to the community by lending her talents to Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy on matters aimed at protecting Minnesota’s air and waterways.
