Jenna has worked on patent litigation matters at every stage, from trial through appeal, and in every forum, from district courts to the International Trade Commission to the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.

Her matters have involved everything from small molecules and biologics to software and hardware.

Jenna served as a Patent Examiner at the United States Patent & Trademark Office while in law school. Jenna received her B.S. in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering from Cornell University and her J.D. from the George Washington University School of Law. She served as a law clerk for the Honorable Robert W. Schroeder III in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, and as a Judicial Fellow for then-United States District Court Judge Leonard P. Stark and United States Magistrate Judge Christopher J. Burke in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware.

Jenna is co-chair of the Associate Advisory Committee and acts as a shadow member of the Board of Directors for the New York IP Law Association and vice chair of the Patent Litigation Committee for the Federal Circuit Bar Association.  She has presented on issues such as Section 112 in ANDA and BPCIA cases, the Federal Circuit Rules of Practice, the Patent Trademark and Appeal Board, and diversity.

She recently received the Rising Star award from the New York Law Journal, which “celebrates those attorneys who are making a difference in their field in the early stages of their careers and already leaving their marks.” Jenna was also recently recognized in the inaugural edition of the Lawdragon 500 X – The Next Generation, which recognizes lawyers “who have taken the industry by storm in recent years.”
