Intellectual property law firm Jones Robb expanded recently with the addition of Jean Dickman, a well-respected and seasoned patent attorney. Jean brings more than 20 years of experience to the firm, with an emphasis on patent portfolio development and strategic patent counseling. Prior to joining Jones Robb, Jean worked at a large general practice law firm where she advised clients in patent preparation and prosecution matters and IP due diligence before embarking upon her passion to serve clients through a more collaborative and focused patent boutique law firm model.
“Jean has been a wonderful addition to the Jones Robb team,” said Susie Jones, founding and managing member of Jones Robb. “Her in-depth knowledge of patent law and passion for supporting innovators allows Jean to consistently obtain effective results for clients. In addition, Jean’s technical experience rounds out key technology areas germane to various fields and industries in which the firm’s clients seek patent protection and counseling. Jean’s presence also adds to our diverse workforce and advances our commitment to creating opportunities for women in the field of intellectual property law.”
Jean concentrates her practice on patent preparation and prosecution, as well as competitor monitoring, post-grant proceedings, due diligence investigations, intellectual property (IP) licensing, contract review and drafting, and patent portfolio monetization. Her technical experience is vast and includes areas such as computer software, telecommunications, medical and surgical devices, artificial intelligence, healthcare software, and consumer goods. Jean is dedicated to protecting her clients’ innovations while simultaneously meeting their business goals.
“After speaking with Susie and learning of our aligned goal to support women in IP law, I knew that joining this women-owned, patent firm was the right decision for my career and practice,” said Jean. “There is immense synergy between us, and I am thrilled to be working with like-minded attorneys who value the development and success of women in our field.”
Throughout March, the firm has celebrated women in history and the women of Jones Robb. As a certified Women’s Business Enterprise, Jones Robb is breaking barriers in the male-dominated area of patent law. Gender disparities in this field persist due to its roots in the STEM industries, and the firm is proud of the unique perspective it brings to its work.
