Biography

Bethany Love’s practice includes advising clients with regard to patent procurement, patent portfolio analysis, and contentious proceedings before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Bethany has experience in a wide array of technologies including mechanical, computer, software, and Internet-related technologies.

Prior to joining BoMc, Bethany worked as an associate at an international general practice law firm. While there, she was part of a team that represented both plaintiffs and defendants before U.S. District Courts, and also represented petitioners before the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board. Such experiences continue to inform Bethany’s approach to the practice of patent law.

During law school, Bethany served as an associate editor of IDEA: The Intellectual Property Law Review. She also spent a semester in Dublin, Ireland at an IP boutique firm where she gained experience in both patent prosecution and trademark matters. Upon graduation, Bethany received the Franklin Pierce Intellectual Property Law Certificate.
