Insights: News Releases National Law Journal Names Kilpatrick Townsend’s Kate Gaudry a D.C. Trailblazer
Inaugural List Features 50 Attorneys Who are Agents of Change
WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 8) – Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton announced today that Kate Gaudry, a partner in the firm’s Washington, D.C. office, was named by the National Law Journal as a D.C. Trailblazer for the inaugural year of the award. The publication’s D.C. Trailblazers list recognizes legal professionals who have made “significant marks on the practice, policy and technological advancements in their sector”. In the midst of constant change, the publication wanted to highlight “those that are sincerely innovators and thought leaders.”
Ms. Gaudry focuses her practice on data-driven and strategic patent prosecution. Most of her clients are innovating in the artificial intelligence and/or computational biology fields. She has authored over 60 publications sharing results of generally applicable analyses, and her work was also pivotal in the shutting down of the USPTO’s SAWS program, which secretly subjected select patent applications to increased examination scrutiny. Ms. Gaudry’s research and data focus was recognized when she was one of five attorneys across all practice areas in the nation to be selected for LexMachina’s and Law360’s Data-Driven Lawyer award in its inaugural year of 2018. Ms. Gaudry was a co-author of the “Patenting Trends” study, which was recognized by JD Supra as among the top five Patents-category articles in 2019.
