- defensive strategies for minimizing risk (e.g., strategies to “design around” claims)
- portfolio development and strategies for protecting inventions.
Before beginning her legal career, Lock See was involved in the research and development of processes for fabricating thin-film electronic devices, and has published several technical papers relating to various aspects of thin-film processing.
Lock See has been a clinic instructor and lecturer for various PLI patent-prosecution programs since 2007.
In connection with her post-doctoral research, Lock See was a co-recipient of the 1995 IBM Research Division Award.
