Anne Barry: Women Patent Prosecutors with Remarkable Track Records in 101

May 7, 2021
IP Toolworks

Anne Barry and only a handful other women patent attorneys are recognized by IP Toolworks for the distinction of having the highest performance, based on their ability to overcome 101 rejections, considering both granted patents and applications in which all 101s were overcome but that may not have ultimately issued for other reasons. The article, Celebrating Excellence: Women Patent Prosecutors with Remarkable Track Records in 101, also features guidance from Anne. 

IP Toolworks used its extensive database of patent prosecution documents to identify patent attorneys and agents with the highest performance, based on their ability to overcome 101 rejections, considering both granted patents and applications in which all 101s were overcome but that may not have ultimately issued for other reasons. These practitioners hold exceptional track records. Such achievement rightly affords best-in-class status, placing our recipients within the top 0.3% of patent prosecutors in this challenging field.
