At the Federal Circuit, Lauren maintains an active docket, having served as appellate counsel of record in dozens of patent appeals. Some of her Federal Circuit experience includes representing numerous companies as appellees in invalidating patents on case-dispositive Section 101 grounds and arguing an issue of first-impression involving inter partes review proceedings and statutory interpretation of the America Invents Act.
Before joining Baker Botts, Lauren clerked for the Honorable Raymond T. Chen of the Federal Circuit, where she regularly assisted in the disposition of a wide range of intellectual property matters.
