Andrea Gabert counsels clients in US and foreign patent prosecution in a variety of areas related to chemistry, including pharmaceuticals, organic materials, chemical processes, polymers, diagnostic devices and methodology, and food product and testing devices. She focuses her practice on patent prosecution, due diligence and portfolio development, and particularly enjoys managing extensive worldwide portfolios and counseling clients to maximize their protection. Andrea’s scientific background includes inorganic, organic, organometallic, and polymer chemistry.

Andrea received her doctorate degree at MIT under the supervision of Prof. Richard R. Schrock, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, 2005. Her doctoral research included organometallic catalysis and the synthesis and characterization of chemical compounds and polymers, including triblock copolymers and liquid crystal mesogens. 

Before entering graduate school, Andrea participated in the cooperative education program at her undergraduate institute. Her research experience through this program included food product testing, organometallic research, and the development of drug analysis methods.


  • Developed and managed a start-up client’s patent portfolio including client’s own and in-licensed patents/applications for 10+ years.
  • Coordinated and prepared patent landscape studies to help clients identify and evaluate risk of infringement as barrier to market entry.
  • Extensive knowledge and experience in foreign prosecution, including coordinating patent prosecution strategies in 20+ jurisdictions.
  • Coordinated freedom-to-operate and patentability studies in numerous fields including biomedical applications and chemical processes, and aided in the preparation of invalidity opinions.
  • Evaluated a complex patent portfolio for a large pharmaceutical client and developed strategies to place the client in a best position worldwide, including identifying and preparing patent applications directed to areas of improvement.


Andrea enjoys spending time with her husband and two children, and time in the kitchen, cooking ethnic cuisines and cake decorating.
