Laura Sole focuses her practice on patent prosecution in areas related to chemistry and materials science. 

Prior to joining Wolf Greenfield, Laura was a senior associate at WilmerHale where she focused on pharmaceutical patent prosecution in the U.S. and foreign countries. She counseled clients on topics including patent infringement of utility and design patents as well as the interaction between the patent system and marketing approval of drug products. In addition to client counseling, Laura has also assisted with IP litigations, representing the originator in multiple BPCIA litigations. She also has experience with inter partes review proceedings.

Before her career with law, Laura was a research assistant at the Northwestern University Chemistry Department where she researched the development of an inorganic Co(III) Schiff base complex as a potential cancer therapeutic.
