Clients sought Andrea Reister for their most important patent office matters. She had preserved and secured millions of dollars of value in post-issuance proceedings, patent prosecution and portfolio management, and in transactional due diligence. As head of Covington’s Patent Office Trials Practice, she was the rare “triple threat” - a lawyer with successes before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB); experience litigating District court cases, including Hatch-Waxman; and leadership in Federal Circuit appeals.

Clients routinely cited the span of her technical expertise, her ability to work under demanding deadlines, and her ability to win for them before the PTO, in district court jury trials, in Hatch-Waxman ANDA litigation, and in ITC proceedings.

She achieved highly successful outcomes for her clients in computer and communications technologies, including Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), wireless and ADSL; computer virus protection; cell phone messaging; pharmaceutical formulations and vaccines; and medical devices.

Clients regularly sought her counsel on Hatch-Waxman pre-litigation audits, worldwide portfolio development and management, including strategic advice for offensive and defensive patent procurement, and for competitor landscape evaluation.
