Meet Tina Chappell, Intel In-House Counsel for Whom Working on Patent Appeals Is 'My Chocolate'

When Tina Chappell went to law school, she knew she wanted to be a patent attorney.

Now, as senior litigation counsel at Intel, her job puts her with talented engineers and in-house and outside counsel on federal appeals court and even U.S. Supreme Court cases, work she describes as “really my chocolate, my candy. It’s the thing I love to do,” she tells the National Law Journal.

Perhaps someday she will focus on academia or possibly work as a judge, she predicts. But being paid to learn in a fast-paced cutting-edge technological environment is a dream job, the Brigham Young University law graduate says. “I honestly think my career and my profession are a lot of fun.”
