About Melissa

Melissa McKeon is the Operations Manager, Patents at Bereskin & Parr LLP. She manages the IP Processing Department, the Maintenance Fee Department and the Patent Practice Support Group Department. She works with the Patent Practice Advisory Group to create policies, procedures and precedents for use by the firm. In addition, she works closely with the Patricia Administrator to create and modify workflows for the firm’s due date system.

Having previously been a patent assistant and foreign patent clerk at the firm, Melissa is able to fine tune processes and implement administrative best practices in a meaningful way.

Outside of work, Melissa enjoys boating, golfing, skiing, camp fires and music. In her younger years, she competed in rowing as well as played the organ. She hopes to one day find the time to enjoy these activities again.
