Dr. Anita Bowles has more than 15 years of experience as a patent professional. Her practice focuses on the fields of physics, software, electrical and mechanical engineering, materials engineering, medical devices, and the interface between biology and electrical, mechanical and computer technologies. Anita has assisted clients in developing IP strategy and patent protection in a broad range of technologies, including semiconductor processing and devices, optical systems, machine vision systems, software and other computer-implemented inventions, sports equipment, mechanical systems, microelectromechanical systems, medical devices, surgical tools, medical implants, and modeling of biological systems. Anita assists clients with patent drafting, worldwide patent prosecution, patentability analysis, infringement analysis, and freedom to operate analysis. Anita has also supported patent litigation in the Federal courts and proceedings in the International Trade Commission addressing infringement of patents.
Anita graduated as salutatorian from Suffolk University Law School. Prior to law school, Anita received her PhD from Harvard University’s physics department for her work quantifying thermo-mechanical properties of organic thin films. While in graduate school, she also conducted research at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, exploring high energy density materials under ultrahigh pressure. As an undergraduate at the University of Colorado at Boulder, she researched particle identification in high energy particle accelerator experiments.
