About Erica A. Bobak
Erica A. Bobak is a native Las Vegan, a graduate of Bishop Gorman college preparatory school, and a proud alumna of University of Nevada – Las Vegas’ (“UNLV[’s]”) William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration. Erica experienced the demands of the special events business at a young age. Her family has owned Soirées Catering & Events for over 35 years, and Erica worked the front and back of the house supporting the business, doing everything from creating filing systems to managing décor arrangement. Erica went on to law school, receiving her Juris Doctor from the UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law in 2015.
During law school, Erica developed an interest in legal issues specific to the fashion industry, including intellectual property protection and labeling regulations imposed by both international and domestic regulatory authorities, such as the FTC. She began to offer classes regarding intellectual property considerations for emerging designers at downtown Las Vegas’ Stitch Factory, and continues to teach at the Las Vegas Trade and Fashion Academy. Erica has written several papers regarding intellectual property law and its complicated relationship with the fashion industry, and makes an effort to attend national fashion law symposiums to monitor bicoastal perspectives of the current legal landscape in fashion.
Before joining the firm, Erica served as the judicial law clerk for the Honorable Jerry A. Wiese II in Department 30 of the Eighth Judicial District Court for Clark County, Nevada, giving her the opportunity to see a wide variety of civil cases, including contract disputes, general liability defense, complex litigation involving numerous third party and subrogation claims, and cases involving medical providers. Erica is a member of the State Bar of Nevada and is licensed to practice law in all Nevada State Courts, as well as in the United States District Court for the District of Nevada. Erica enjoys baking, traveling, and volunteering as a member of both the Junior League of Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Fashion Council.
