STEPHANIE AMOROSO, PH.D.
Stephanie R. Amoroso is a patent attorney who thrives on helping clients in the biotech, life sciences, and chemical fields innovate by procuring strong patent portfolios in today’s challenging legal climate. Stephanie became a patent lawyer because she enjoys learning the technical details of diverse technologies, and leveraging this knowledge to solve problems. She also believes that understanding how a patent portfolio fits into a company’s business is critical to developing a comprehensive strategy.
With over 15 years of broad-based law firm experience including prosecuting and litigating technically complex patents, Stephanie has first-hand knowledge of how to obtain strong patents that can withstand rigorous attacks by opponents in court and administrative proceedings.
In addition to obtaining patents, Stephanie also helps clients achieve freedom-to-operate for their products and services through providing opinions, drafting and negotiating license and settlement agreements, providing IP diligence for corporate deals, as well as through commencing USPTO administrative proceedings.
Stephanie began her career at an IP boutique while attending law school at night. Stephanie then spent nearly a decade at an AmLaw 50 firm asserting and defending patents in litigation and international arbitration, including appeals to the Federal Circuit. Notably, she was lead counsel on a team that obtained a $450 million dollar damages award for breach of a patent license and patent infringement.
Stephanie is married and is a mom to two elementary-aged children and a young Labrador retriever. Consequently, she is skilled in the arts of negotiation (including bribery) and can easily spot deception.
