St. Johnian Atty. Monique Liburd Named Top 50 Leader in U.S. Tech

Monique Liburd

A 29-year-old native St. Johnian has been named one of the nation’s most accomplished female attorneys in the U.S. technology field.
Monique Liburd, a trademarks attorney at Google, and 49 other professionals were named 50 Women Leaders in Tech Law by the online Recorder, an online publication serving the practice of law.

Liburd and others were credited for leadership and keeping up with the legal aspects of rapidly changing technology trends. Some were also cited for the role they played in deal making and promoting other women into influential legal posts.

Women attorneys representing Facebook, eBay, Apple, Cisco Systems, SanDisk, BlackBerry, Intuit and Apple were also named on the top 50 list. Other attorneys being honored represent boutique law firms. There are also two academics and one government official.

The group will be honored at an event at the JW Marriott Hotel in San Francisco Sept. 23.

Liburd attended the Julius E. Sprauve School in Cruz Bay and the Gifft Hill School in Beverhoudtsberg. She is a graduate of the  California State University at Northridge and Berkley Law School.

In 2013 she was honored by the National Bar Association as a litigation leader.

Nancy Liburd is the daughter of Levi Liburd and Nancy Fish Liburd.

Mother Nancy Liburd said part of her daughter’s interest in technology began early on, when she used to visit the St. John Tradewinds newspaper office on her way home from school and one of the writers would take time to show her the workings of an Apple Mac II computer.
