Anastasia Miyoko Mackert

Associate Attorney

My practice focuses on the areas of patent prosecution and intellectual property with an emphasis on electronic, computer, and software technologies.

Before joining SBMC, I worked at Allen Institute, Paul G. Allen’s research corporation dedicated to answering the biggest questions in bioscience and accelerating research worldwide. I also worked as a patent scientist at Malhotra Law Firm and as a legal extern at the Attorney General Office’s University of Washington Division. During law school, I testified before the Washington House of Representatives’ Technology and Economic Development Committee, explaining blockchain and its applications in the public sector and the Internet of Things. Additionally, I co-authored a blockchain report on behalf of the Washington Legislature. I also presented to legal and business teams at Starbucks Headquarters about smart contracts during an educational lecture on blockchain and cryptocurrency.

I am also a self-directed learner and have continued my education in the blockchain space by learning how to program Ethereum smart contracts. I was selected to participate in the world’s largest Ethereum hackathon in 2018 (ETHSanFrancisco) and was a fully sponsored hacker at San Francisco’s week-long 2018 Blockchain Epicenter and Crypto Economics Security Conference. In 2019 I am deepening my knowledge of computer programming while competing in more hackathons, including ETHDenver and CryptoChicks’ World Championship in Blockchain and AI.
