Janice (Lee) Logan assists clients with worldwide intellectual property (IP) strategies. As a co-leader of the firm’s Asian Life Sciences Working Group, she works with non-IP lawyers and brings a deep background in science to the firm’s life sciences practice, focusing primarily on chemistry, biotechnology, and medical devices. Janice guides clients through complex patent procurement and patent litigation matters. She also manages due diligence for IP asset transactions. Janice is fluent in Korean and Japanese. She also leads the Morgan Lewis IP Academy Series featuring monthly webinars and live seminars in the firm’s Washington, DC office.
Janice has years of experience developing and managing patent portfolios for large and startup companies in biotechnology, including digital therapies and diagnostics. She was selected as 2021 Next Generation Partner by The Legal 500, and one client commented, “Janice Logan’s strength resides in her professional hospitality, which means she really thinks about what she can provide to her clients to achieve their goals. Her consideration is very comprehensive—a business goal, budget, relevant laws, business circumstance, etc. She has a technical background of biotechnology, but her enthusiasm enables her to work on variety of technologies such as AI.”
Prior to entering legal practice, Janice developed stem cell coculture systems in polymer scaffolds for musculoskeletal tissue engineering as her Ph.D. studies and her dissertation research focused on investigating differentiation of adult and embryonic stem cells. She also has published various articles and is an inventor of several patents and patent applications in the field.
