Review Elizabeth Schierman

About Me

My practice is centered on guiding innovators through the protection, acquisition, and/or commercialization of patent and trademark rights. Having IP experience in a variety of technology fields and spanning the breadth of intellectual property law, I counsel clients ranging from international corporations to start-up businesses. I earned degrees in Chemical Engineering and Law from the University of Idaho.  I am an advisory board member for the Department of Chemicals and Materials Engineering in Moscow, Idaho, and am also a member and two-time past chair of the Intellectual Property Law Section of the Idaho State Bar in Boise, Idaho.
