Lisa is currently serving her second term as the Managing Partner of the Firm and also serves as the leader of its Patent Practice Group. Nonetheless, she is actively engaged on a day-to-day basis in what she loves: working with clients to integrate patent strategy with their business goals. A Registered Patent Attorney, Lisa has extensive experience advising clients with regard to the development and management of their patent portfolios in the US and across the globe. In addition, Lisa’s practice includes the analysis of patent issues in diligence investigations as well as freedom to operate assessments.

Lisa is also the former chair of the Firm’s Life Sciences Industry Group, and she serves as counsel to many sectors of the life sciences community, including emerging and established companies, investors, and research and educational institutions. A microbiologist by training, Lisa’s patent experience encompasses diverse areas of life science technologies, from biologics to medical devices — including molecular and cellular biology, immunology, molecular diagnostics, food science, and nutraceuticals.

Prior to her law career, Lisa worked as a veterinary technician and conducted drug dosage efficacy studies in the clinical microbiology and pathology departments at Michigan State University; she also worked at the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine.
