Giordana Mahn

Associate, Fish & Richardson

With a background in mechanical engineering and a passion for working with female founders and inventors, I love helping women secure valuable patent rights for their consumer products, mechanical, biomechanical, electromechanical, sex tech and medical device innovations and technologies. Collaborating closely with my clients to gain a deep understanding of their business is important to me. I pride myself on being accessible to a wide range of clients, with experience in both foreign and domestic patent prosecution, and delivering creative solutions that not only protect my clients’ ideas but also increase marketability. Public service is also a part of who I am. Outside of work, I am a certified mediator and volunteer with organizations like the Center for Conflict Resolution, Cabrini Green Legal Aid, and the Mass Defense Committee of the National Lawyers Guild.
