Biography

Gabriela Baeza-Stout is an accomplished attorney with years of experience both in-house and in private practice. She has broad experience in corporate and M&A matters, as well as in intellectual property as it relates to transactional law.

Gabriela is skilled at developing and implementing strategies for her clients to reduce risk and enhance efficiency, and based on her work in-house, is a true partner in every aspect of the client relationship.

While in-house for a major communications company, Gabriela routinely negotiated and documented strategic M&A transactions and joint ventures; drafted and negotiated nondisclosure agreements with target companies; conducted and reviewed due diligence with an emphasis on intellectual property; reviewed technology contracts such as software development agreements and software licenses; and managed post-merger corporate reorganization planning and execution, including drafting corporate resolutions, reorganization agreements and other intercompany agreements needed for internal transactions. At the onset of the COVID‐19 crisis, Gabriela also became a key member of the legal review team for the interpretation of state and municipal orders and advised the business on the changing legal landscape. She was the primary contact for legal analysis in geographical locations that were critical for the company.

Background

Prior to joining Armstrong Teasdale, Gabriela was in-house corporate and M&A counsel for a major communications company. She also has extensive past experience in intellectual property, having worked in-house as an IP paralegal for a major retailer managing a robust global trademark portfolio, and as an IP legal assistant for Armstrong Teasdale earlier in her career. Outside the legal field, Gabriela has held managerial and professional roles in prominent art and history museums in the United States and abroad, and university teaching engagements in the field of cultural studies and languages.
