Overview

Joy Nemirow is an associate in the Intellectual Property Practice Group in the firm's Palo Alto office.

Areas of Practice

Dr. Nemirow specializes in intellectual property law with an emphasis on patent prosecution and litigation, particularly in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and biotech fields.

She received her Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Southern California. Her graduate research focused on the design and synthesis of novel bisphosphonates for their applications as fluorescent drug probes and as potential dental adhesives. As a graduate student, she was a member of the Interdisciplinary Program of Drug Discovery, where she gained vital exposure to the multidisciplinary fields of medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, and chemical biology. During law school, she served as the Chief Research Editor of the Loyola of Los Angeles Law Review.
