About
I am an attorney specializing in intellectual property law, with expertise in biotechnology/life sciences and cleantech industries. Practice focuses on patent and trademark procurement, patent portfolio evaluation, and strategic intellectual property counseling.

Prior to FisherBroyles, I was patent counsel at Genencor in Palo Alto and a patent associate at Morrison and Foerster. I have Ph.D. in Biochemistry from UCLA, with further technical background in chemistry and chemical engineering. I received my law degree from Santa Clara University.

"Have no doubt: this is one seriously experienced patent lawyer, who speaks the language of chemistry. No need to spend tons of time with background/explanations, she gets it the first time, and hits the ground running. Great time management/sensitivity to start up budgets. Very reasonable rates for someone with her background."

"I recently met with Jill and she provided some valuable insights re: the patent process, about which she is very knowledgeable. I would consult with Jill again anytime I had needs in this area of law. In addition to her knowledge, she was very personable, with a knack for distilling potentially complex legal concepts into something that was very easy to understand. I'd highly recommend her."

" I highly recommend Jill Jacobson, independent patent counsel. Jill has worked for Cobalt, a bioindustrial start up, as our outside patent attorney for almost three years. She works with our R&D team to help them convert their inventions from invention disclosures into strong, well written patent applications. Jill has a great background in the field and came up to speed on our technology very quickly. She has a deep understanding of global patent laws and processes. Her advice on patent strategy, and the pros and cons of different approaches is very solid. "
