Darlene Kondo

Of Counsel

1800 Broadway, Suite 300, Boulder, CO 80302

Darlene brings extensive experience in patent portfolio management and the patent drafting and prosecution process, through her time spent in-house for the intellectual property departments of two technology companies, and in private practice firms as a patent attorney.

While practicing in-house, one of Darlene’s primary objectives was to provide her engineering and business clients with focused and expeditious service when collaborating on technical projects and providing intellectual property guidance.

Darlene brings a deep understanding of the needs of large, sophisticated technology clients with complex portfolios, and is well-versed across a number of next-gen technologies within the electrical, software, complex optical device and systems, data storage device and systems, stereoscopic and autostereoscopic systems, and semiconductor lasers, among others.

She combines her practical and professional experience with an electrical engineering, physics, mathematics, and legal academic background to add strategic value to clients and inform her practice across the patent prosecution lifecycle.
