Her practice includes client counseling and opinions, patent prosecution, post-grant proceedings before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), litigation, and appeals. She was selected as an “HNBA Top Lawyer under 40” by the Hispanic National Bar Association.

Clara has extensive experience drafting and prosecuting U.S. patent applications, coordinating foreign patent prosecution, and assisting clients in the development of trade secret policies. She prepares validity and freedom-to-operate opinions and performs acquisition-related and pre-litigation due diligence analyses.

Clara’s experience also includes reexamination, interference, and inter partes review (IPR) proceedings before the USPTO. In addition, Clara has been involved in all stages of district court litigation, from complaint to trial and post-trial.

Her litigation experience includes analyzing patent portfolios for assertion; formulating claim construction, infringement, and validity positions; drafting discovery requests and responses; taking and defending fact and expert depositions; preparing witnesses for deposition and trial; and examining expert witnesses at trial.

Clara also advises clients on strategies to coordinate litigation and invalidity proceedings in various jurisdictions, including Europe, South America, and Asia.

Clara has experience with a broad range of technologies including consumer, industrial, and pharmaceutical products; polymers, catalysts, metallurgical, and advanced materials; cosmetics, printing inks, oil and gas, batteries, and industrial manufacturing.

Pro bono representation is an important part of Clara’s practice. She represents immigrants seeking asylum through a partnership with Humans Rights First, and volunteers at pro bono immigration clinics in Washington, D.C. and Boston, MA. Clara also represents disabled military veterans before the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veteran Claims in denial of benefits appeals, and domestic abuse survivors in family law related matters.
