OVERVIEW

With more than 15 years of law firm experience, and a technical background, Christine Shapiro is an intellectual property paralegal who offers her attorneys and their clients an ability to perform well under pressure, a naturally process-oriented approach and attention to detail. She’s a problem-solver who helps to move the patent prosecution process forward effectively by managing large portfolios.

Having worked with a range of clients from single inventors to large corporate entities, Christine has developed a sense for what clients may need in terms of guidance and assistance throughout the patent prosecution process. On a regular basis, she facilitates patent filings in the U.S. and internationally; maintains patent and trademark dockets; and monitors patent, trademark and copyright prosecution in collaboration with her attorneys, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, international counsel and various foreign patent offices.

She also drafts and reviews documents included in patent applications, drawings, responses, and formalities requirements for accuracy and adherence to respective jurisdictional rules and procedures, and provides oversight of foreign and U.S. dockets to ensure proper review and acceptance of material by examiners. Importantly, Christine maintains prior art databases and prepares disclosure statements for U.S. and foreign jurisdictions.

Christine corresponds with and reports directly to clients and inventors regarding the particulars of the patent filing and prosecution process, including acquiring reference material for disclosures. She has long-term relationships with several of the firm’s IP clients, which helps her to better anticipate and understand client needs.

Throughout the course of her tenure as a paralegal, she has also trained and mentored fellow IP legal assistants.

Christine spent the first two decades of her career as a quality assurance engineer and applications scientist with Eastman Kodak Company working with molecular imaging systems and as a research associate with Yale University in the areas of neuroscience and gastroenterology. As such, she is able to draw on her strong scientific and technical experience to enhance her understanding of subject matter that she encounters in the course of her patent prosecution work.
