Anjali Jenna Teigen’s (“AJ”) practice encompasses a wide range of areas of IP and technology law, including patent litigation, patent prosecution, post-grant proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), licensing, opinions, and counselling. She handles matters primarily in the mechanical and life sciences field, including biomedical, chemical, biological, and pharmaceutical technologies.
Her practice encompasses advising clients on FDA regulations regarding drug promotion, conducting due diligence in acquiring a drug product or a company, and freedom to operate analyses of whether a particular idea is patentable. On the litigation side, she has provided support for post-grant reviews before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, as well as litigation regarding foreign entities.
On the prosecution side, AJ’s work may begin with evaluating and analyzing each client’s IP needs, which may be followed by drafting a provisional application, refining the provisional into a non-provisional application, and prosecuting the application both domestically and worldwide, with an international focus on Europe.
Prior to joining Rothwell Figg, AJ was a summer associate at the firm. During this time, she assisted with legal research, patent applications, office action responses, drafting briefs, IPRs before PTAB, and pro bono counseling. She is also a former judicial intern for the Honorable J. Michelle Childs of the District of South Carolina, a role in which she focused on drafting memos for intellectual property cases. Additionally, AJ has prior experience in engineering and research.
AJ graduated with a J.D. from Washington & Lee University School of Law, where she was the IP director of the Sports, Entertainment, and Intellectual Property Law Society and the recipient of both the Washington & Lee Intellectual Property Law Fellowship and the Federal Circuit Bar Association’s 2015 Helen W. Nies Scholarship. She received her B.S. in bioengineering, with a concentration in biomaterials, from Clemson University.
