Associate / St. Louis Metro Office

Claire is known for setting high targets and delivering exceptional results. Clients and colleagues appreciate that she has a coolheaded communication style that is backed with a tireless work ethic for obtaining the strongest patent claims possible. She has experience managing patent prosecution efforts from start to finish, including conducting patentability assessments, interviewing inventors, preparing U.S. and international applications, responding to Office Actions, and preparing IP licensing agreements following issuance.

Claire’s technical experience spans the mechanical, electromechanical, and electronics sectors, and includes technologies such as heavy machinery, rail transportation, computer systems, LCD displays, solar panels, and autonomous vehicles. She is also familiar with various medical devices and uses her minor in chemistry to get up to speed quickly on her clients’ latest innovations in the life sciences field.

While earning her degree in engineering, Claire worked as a corporate engineering intern with a heavy machinery manufacturer, where she helped improve manufacturability of sheet metal prints through dimensioning and tolerance schemes. She also analyzed 3D models of mining trucks to create power distribution subsystem diagrams and perform voltage drop analyses. As a result, Claire is familiar with many of the tools and processes inventors use and is able to easily converse with them about the challenges they are trying to solve.

When she is not in the office, Claire enjoys golfing, hiking, skiing, and spending time with her husband and their French Bulldog, Watson.
