Kate Bernier

US patent attorney
I am a US patent attorney in the field of mechanical engineering, with a specialty in medical devices and surgical methods. One thing I enjoy most about my work is the challenge of taking a client’s idea from its most fundamental concept and evolving it along the trajectory of becoming a tangible, enforceable legal right.


  • Electrical Engineering
  • Medical Technology
  • Optics
  • Mechanical Engineering

My professional background is well-rounded in that I have had exposure to the intellectual property sphere from three key perspectives: first, as a client attempting to navigate what may or may not be patentable during my time as a Project Manager for a medical research lab; second, as a former USPTO Patent Examiner operating as an agent of the governmental authority to determine what is or is not patentable; and third, as an attorney in the private sector advocating to best protect the patentable rights to which the client is entitled.

I endeavor to maintain a diversified skill set and thus always appreciate the opportunity to develop new skills so that I can best serve each client’s particular needs.
