Lissi is a globally recognized leader in post-grant proceedings and one of the most experienced practitioners in this field. Before moving to the private sector, Lissi was an examiner with the US Patent Trademark Office (USPTO) for 19 years.

Lissi also specializes in appeals to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s Patent Trial and Appeal Board, as well as patent quality and patent examination matters.
