Representative IP Experience

Kathleen frequently works with new clients who are uncertain whether their existing intellectual property is protecting their business. She studies their business and products, then revises existing patent applications to better protect those products and cover alternative designs, while identifying what IP may not be needed to reduce expenses. In consideration of the client's budget, Kathleen also manages the IP portfolio by prioritizing IP products.

Kathleen's representative IP experience follows.

    • Worked with foreign counsel to develop global IP protection and strategies for patent oppositions in foreign jurisdictions
    • Evaluated intellectual property portfolios in connection with venture capital and private equity financings, acquisitions, and joint development initiatives from clients
    • Acted as in-house patent counsel for clients and drafted and negotiated their license agreements and other technology-related agreements
    • Assisted in briefing and developing litigation strategies for patent infringement lawsuits and Inter Partes Review proceedings
