Larisa Migachyov brings real-world engineering experience to her patent practice. She holds a Master's degree in biomechanical engineering from Stanford University and a Bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering (minor in mathematics) from the University of Minnesota. While at Stanford, she obtained a patent for an invention of her own (U.S. Pat. No. 6,304,840), and invented several other devices. After graduating, she worked as a mechanical engineer for several years before opening her own design consulting firm, serving individual inventors and assisting them with design for manufacturability, industrial design, prototype creation, and the drafting of patent drawings.

Ms. Migachyov passed the Patent Bar Exam in 2005 and became a patent agent; shortly thereafter, she entered law school at the University of Pennsylvania. Throughout law school, Ms. Migachyov maintained a patent prosecution practice. After graduating from law school, she worked for the prestigious firm of Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP, specializing in patent litigation, before opening her own practice.

Ms. Migachyov is fluent in Russian and is very happy to work with Russian-speaking clients.
