Tiffany Weksberg is a patent agent in the firm’s Intellectual Property, Patent, Trademark and Copyright Litigation practice. Tiffany’s multidisciplinary academic training and experience offers versatility across multiple technology areas including oil and gas, computer methods, biochemistry, and molecular biology; the knowledge base to learn new technology quickly and efficiently; and the ability to work seamlessly with collaborators from different backgrounds.

Her graduate research focused on simulating the movement of proteins in order to elucidate how drugs interact with proteins in a dynamic environment.  She was the recipient of a predoctoral fellowship and has several peer reviewed research papers.  Prior to joining King and Spalding, Tiffany worked in the patent law group of a large oil and gas operating company.
