Boston (September 5, 2018)…Murtha Cullina LLP is pleased to welcome Donna L. Lizotte as Counsel in the Firm’s Intellectual Property Practice Group. 

Ms. Lizotte represents clients from technical industries in all aspects of patent law, but generally in the electrical and computer arts.  Specifically, she has extensive experience with analog and digital electronics, computers, biomedical systems and devices, electromechanical systems and generally complex systems. 

“Donna’s advanced degrees in electrical engineering allow her to both understand complex inventions and communicate with high technology inventors on a different level than most patent attorneys.  We are fortunate to add an attorney with both her education and experience to our team,” said Anthony P. Gangemi, Chair of Murtha Cullina’s Intellectual Property Practice Group.

Ms. Lizotte regularly prepares and prosecutes U.S. and foreign patent applications and performs patentability searches. In addition, she has drafted numerous complex patent applications including multiple claim sets for the U.S., PCT and selected foreign jurisdictions.
