A scientific background supports effective advocacy

Eleanor’s background has supplied her with the ability to think analytically and solve complex problems — crucial skills in her IP litigation practice. Working within the firm’s life sciences team, Eleanor focuses primarily on patent litigation and advising clients on patent-related matters. She routinely carries out legal research, assists in the development of litigation strategy, drafts written arguments and prepares opinions.

In addition to her litigation practice, Eleanor assists in patent prosecution and providing strategic guidance related to securing and enforcing patent rights.

Day-to-day, Eleanor uses her in-depth scientific knowledge to inform her legal practice. Her clients—who include companies in the biotech, pharmaceutical and chemical industries—can trust that her background in law and chemistry gives her valuable insight into their businesses.

Eleanor holds a JD from the University of Toronto and a Master of Science degree in Chemistry from Northwestern University. She has performed scientific research in both academic and industry settings and has published several articles in relation to organic chemistry, materials and nanotechnology.
