Jie Lu is a science law clerk in Goodwin’s Intellectual Property Litigation practice within the firm’s Litigation Department. She contributes to the firm’s work in patent litigation, patent opinions and due diligence. Jie joined the firm in 2021. She is a registered patent agent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), and her practice is limited to matters and proceedings for the USPTO. Jie holds a PhD in chemistry and is a part-time student at Suffolk University Law School.

Professional Experience

Prior to joining Goodwin, Jie worked as a research scientist in the chemical and healthcare industry.

Jie obtained her PhD in Chemistry from New York University, where she studied organic and polymer chemistry. Her doctoral research focused on the invention of a core-shell micelle supported dual catalyst nanoreactor for tandem catalysis. Taking advantage of the compartmentalization in the micelle structure, two incompatible catalytic reactions with chiral selectivity can be combined in one-pot in aqueous media.
