She assists clients through the entire patent lifecycle by preparing and prosecuting U.S. patent applications, collaborating with counsel in other jurisdictions to obtain patent rights outside of the U.S., assisting clients with licensing and patent portfolio analysis, and conducting freedom-to-operate and pre-suit investigations.
Prior to becoming an attorney, Meghan obtained undergraduate and graduate degrees in electrical engineering, and she then worked in research and development at Northrup Grumman for five years. There she developed signal processing techniques and automatic target recognition algorithms for use in radar and infrared detection systems. During law school, Meghan was an associate editor of the Georgetown Law Journal. After graduating from law school, Meghan worked as a patent practitioner at Fish & Richardson in Washington DC.
