About the Author

Sarah Hasford

Sarah Hasford has been involved in the field of patent law for almost ten years. She began her career working as a Patent Examiner at the United States Patent and Trademark Office in Alexandria, Virginia where she examined patent applications directed to heterocyclic pharmaceutical and agricultural compounds. After working as an Examiner, Sarah attended law school at Franklin Pierce Law Center (now known as the University of New Hampshire School of Law). While in law school Sarah interned for the Honorable Arthur J. Gajarsa of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Upon graduating from law school, Sarah entered private practice in the Washington, D.C. area. Sarah’s practice spanned all aspects of patent law, including patent prosecution, opinion work, and litigation with an emphasis on pharmaceutical patent litigation under the Hatch-Waxman Act. In 2015, Sarah left law firm practice to pursue her passion for educating non-legal professionals about patent law.
