Chloe Dixon, Associate

Skilled IP lawyer with the technical knowledge to take on any challenge

Passion pushes Chloe to go above and beyond in every client matter she handles. Her lifelong dream to be an intellectual property attorney became a reality at Patterson + Sheridan where she prepares and prosecutes patent applications with a focus on communications technologies, semiconductors, nanotechnology and optics.

Becoming an attorney was always Chloe’s main goal, but the technical knowledge she gained while earning her bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Texas A&M provided a valuable foundation. Whether semiconductor fabrication or VLSI circuit design, Chloe maximizes her understanding of complex concepts and theories to gain an edge in clients’ cases.

While attending Baylor University, Chloe co-founded the Baylor Law Intellectual Property Society and served as its president. She also participated in the Duberstein National Moot Court Competition where her team was awarded second place and best brief amid 59 teams.

A sharp communicator with out-of-the box thinking and creativity

Chloe prides herself in being a skilled wordsmith. She enjoys thinking up creative arguments and finding the perfect words for a claim amendment or patent draft. Chloe further honed her writing skills as a senior executive editor for the Baylor Law Review, in which she published an article analyzing what the court failed to consider in Commil USA, LLC v. Cisco Systems.

When Patterson + Sheridan needed a thoughtful piece written about the differences of working as a summer associate before and during the COVID-19 pandemic, they knew where to turn. Chloe detailed her experience for the Texas Lawyer, going in-depth about the most important lessons she learned, including the value of communicating clearly and frequently.

Coolheaded problem solving with a service-oriented mentality

Chloe has a deep respect and appreciation for good client service. She spent three years as an undergraduate working as an IT technician in the Texas A&M engineering department where she gained valuable experience communicating conceptually difficult ideas to her peers. Chloe was also selected to the school's University Scholars Program, which challenges its members’ critical thinking skills by encouraging them to have difficult conversations and seek out multiple viewpoints. She leverages this experience to develop bulletproof legal arguments.

Outside of work, Chloe enjoys playing volleyball, camping, and spending quality time with her dog. She also loves singing and was a choir member for more than a decade.
