Employee Spotlight with Gloria Pereira

Docketing Manager for MMVIP

Tell us a bit about yourself. What is your background?

I started working as a paralegal back in 2012 at a small patent firm based out Reston before moving to Arent Fox in 2014 where I worked, also as patent paralegal, for two years before coming to MMVIP.

How long have you been with MMV IP?

I have been with McBee, Moore & Vanik IP, LLC for 5 years this July.

What is your role with the Firm? What does this position entail?

I am the Docketing Manager. I process emails sent to and from clients, monitor and update case deadlines, processing all filing receipts and update/open case files as needed, handle all incoming and outgoing transfers, and train new hires.

What is your favorite thing about working at MMV IP?

Of course I love getting to have my pup with me all day while I work, but on a professional level, I really appreciate the leadership role that MMVIP has allowed me to take on not only as a manager, but even as a paralegal. Being able to work for a firm where I feel like I am able to contribute ideas to help move the firm in a positive direction is a great feeling

What are you looking forward to the most in 2021 with MMV IP?

I am looking forward to growing into my new role as Docketing Manager and being able to contribute even more ideas to make MMV IP the best we’ve ever been.
