Professional Background

Jordana Goodman is an Intellectual Property Attorney at Danielson Legal LLC. Goodman has worked as an intellectual property attorney and transactional attorney in Boston since graduating from law school, primarily concentrating in the area of patent prosecution. In her current role, she composes non-provisional applications, PCTs, office actions, and provisional applications, and argues their patentability at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Goodman also has experience with inter partes review proceedings, drafting contracts, reviewing and composing freedom to operate agreements, and conducting prior art searches.

Goodman is currently working on a paper called “Sy-STEM-ic Racism: An Exploration of Gender and Race Representation on University-Sponsored Patents” in which she's looking at representation of inventors on patents and comparing that representation to reported statistics of a university's population. The paper will quantify representational disparities on recently filed patents at U.S. universities and offer hypotheses as to the reasons behind those disparities and what can be done to reduce them.
