Phyllis Simon is an attorney with over a decade of experience in intellectual property law, representing domestic and foreign clients in trademark and domain name protection; patent preparation and prosecution; licensing; patentability analysis; and patent infringement analysis.
My trademark practice includes trademark registration, trademark availability analysis, trademark enforcement, and domain name protection.
My patent practice involves chemicals and chemical processes, polymer chemistry, organic chemistry, cosmetics, catalysts, composite materials, mechanical devices, electronic materials, organic electronics, consumer electronics, OLEDs, fuel cells, medical devices, batteries, solar cells, biotechnology and nanotechnology.
Relevant technical experience includes chemistry and chemical engineering, with particular proficiency in fluid mechanics, microfluidics, polymers, textile treatments, electrochemistry and biotechnology.
I worked as a research chemical engineer for Nano-Tex, LLC, where I developed textile finishes and protocols for testing the performance and durability of treated fabrics; and InnoChem, Inc., where I focused on novel processes for manufacturing chemicals for use in electroplating baths. I also have academic research experience in characterizing grain boundaries in polycrystalline silicon, and measuring velocity profiles of fluids containing biological macromolecules in microfluidic devices. In addition, I was an instructor of biotechnology at Silicon Valley College.
Prior to forming Simon Law PLLC, I was an attorney at boutique intellectual property law firms in northern Virginia and southern California.
