Noelle Cacciabeve, Partner

Noelle Cacciabeve approaches her practice from a science background. As an undergraduate, Noelle pursued a project in the field of high energy particle physics. This work gave her the opportunity to learn how new technologies are developed and also how to think critically about highly complex, technical problems. Noelle draws on this early experience to engage with inventors—some of whom may not be accustomed to working with lawyers or on patents. She strongly believes that establishing a connection with clients and inventors is essential to building a long and trusting relationship and gaining a deeper understanding of her clients’ technologies, goals, and expectations.

Noelle has prepared and prosecuted hundreds of patent applications covering a wide variety of technologies, including aerospace, automotive, mobile and cloud computing, and medical devices. As part of this work, Noelle has assisted her clients in the development and strategic management of multi-national patent portfolios focusing on specific products and applications. Just as important, she helps clients optimize their broader long-term portfolio goals. Noelle’s experience also includes due diligence efforts, patent and trademark litigation, and trademark oppositions.

Noelle strongly believes it is important to treat both clients and adversaries with courtesy, kindness, and respect. In pursuit of that goal, Noelle enjoys mentoring and developing the skills of new lawyers. She is a longtime member of The John C. Lifland American Inn of Court, which provides lawyers of all levels of experience (including Federal Magistrate and District Court judges) the opportunity to engage and learn from one another in a relaxed and collegial atmosphere.

Noelle delights in spending time with her husband and two daughters out of doors—fishing, hiking, and ice skating, while avoiding coyotes, bears, and the occasional bobcat in Boonton Township, New Jersey.
