Goodwin Procter partner Jennifer Albert has been named to Law360’s 2014 list of the 20 most influential women in intellectual property law.
In the inaugural edition of this series, Law360 honors women who have made significant strides in the male-dominated field of intellectual property law, showcasing the career accomplishments of a select group of female attorneys who are leading the charge in waging high-stakes patent battles, managing billion-dollar portfolios and closing mega IP deals.
A committee of Law360 editors selected 20 women to honor for their outstanding achievements. Albert has more than 25 years of intellectual property litigation experience. She focuses on patent litigation in the federal district courts, at the International Trade Commission and at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, as well appeals of matters from those courts.
On September 30, Albert was interviewed by Law360 as part of its series of profiles of the award winners. The interview discusses several of her recent high profile matters, including a case that produced the first precedential ruling under the proceedings created by the America Invents Act from the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board of behalf of online payment technology company CardinalCommerce.
In addition, Albert discussed Goodwin’s Women’s Initiative and the firm’s dedication to advancing the careers of female attorneys. “When I was first starting out in my career there were few women partners, particularly in IP,” Albert said. “I was lucky to develop good strong mentor relationships with partners and that really helped to steer my career in the right direction.”
