Jewell’s practice includes preparing and prosecuting patent applications for a range of new technologies, providing litigation support, conducting trademark clearance searches, and handling the full spectrum of discovery. As a person with a hearing impairment, she has a particular interest in helping healthcare innovators develop and protect intellectual property that improves disease outcomes and patient quality of life. Her background in nursing, her vast knowledge of the hard sciences, and her firsthand understanding of the value of innovation give her a unique perspective on intellectual property protection.
