Arpita Bhattacharyya, Ph.D., practices all aspects of patent law, including district court and ITC litigation, patent office trials and examination, and client counseling, with an emphasis on patents related to medical devices, diagnostics, and electronic and mechanical technologies.
Arpita is involved in all phases of patent litigation, including discovery efforts, claim construction, working with technical and damages experts for preparing reports, depositions and trial, taking and defending depositions, examining witnesses at trial, and drafting motions and trial briefs throughout every phase of litigation.
In her patent office practice, Arpita represents petitioners and patent owners in post-grant proceedings, including inter partes review (IPR), post-grant review (PGR), and reexamination, where her role involves preparing written submissions, taking and defending depositions, and arguing at the oral hearing.
Arpita’s counseling practice includes providing strategic advice through opinions of counsel, prosecuting U.S. and foreign patent applications, patent portfolio development and management, due diligence investigations, and freedom-to-operate analysis.
Arpita’s Ph.D. dissertation work focused on developing microfluidic “lab-on-a-chip” technologies for point-of-care immunoassays and molecular diagnostics. She received a Technology Development Grant from Boston University during Ph.D. studies for prototype development of a “lab-on-a-chip” for molecular diagnostics.
While completing her Master’s program, Arpita studied protein adsorption behavior in microfluidic channels and analyzed surface modification conditions that resist biofouling of MEMS devices.
Aside from her field of research, Arpita gained technical experience in image processing, orthopedics, microfabrication, and biomaterials during her graduate studies. She also gained experience in a wide range of electrical technologies, including telecommunication devices, computer architecture, semiconductors, and robotics during her undergraduate studies.
