Ann C. Bernert, Ph.D.

Patent Agent

Portland Office



Ann prepares and prosecutes U.S. patent applications, both nationally and internationally, in a variety of biotechnology fields.

Prior to Klarquist, Ann worked on research projects in campus laboratories involving human microbiome, entomology, plant pathology, and biochemistry and helped run educational programs engaging K-12 students in agriculture, biotechnology, natural resource management, and independent scientific research. Her Ph.D. research focused on identifying previously unknown biochemical reactions, genes, and proteins in conserved biosynthetic pathways. During her Ph.D. program, she participated in a University Technology Transfer Office program where she learned the process of creating a technology start-up and licensing patents from universities. This experience inspired her to pursue law school and a career as a patent attorney.

Ann joined Klarquist in 2021.
