The web-hosted event titled, “Protecting Your Client’s Intellectual Property: What Every Lawyer Needs to Know” will dive into the basics of intellectual property (IP) law, providing an overview of patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, and licensing essentials, preview common IP issues, and cover basic IP terminology for attorneys with limited practical IP experience.

She focuses her practice on the preparation and prosecution of domestic patent applications in the chemical engineering and materials arts, and providing opinions related to IP issues.

Patel has multi-faced experience working extensively within a variety of industries, with emphasis on technologies related to chemical engineering and advanced materials. She provides reliable insight to clients regarding business-critical decisions such as whether to patent an inventive concept, whether they have freedom to operate, the validity of granted patents, and determining the state of the art and any white space in a specific technology market.
