It’s been quiet on the website, but things have really been crackling. I am humbled to be selected an Illinois Super Lawyer for the 4th year in a row. This is an honor reserved for the top 5% of lawyers in the state. I am grateful for my clients for their trust. Props to my esteemed peers for their professional respect and support.
Please join me in congratulating Barbara, Anna and Jay for their new patent in the field of anesthesia intubation devices. Kudos to Lara and to Ginelle for new trademarks. We are busy working on new patent applications in the automotive, boat, energy, and pharmaceutical spaces. There are trade secret agreements in the pipeline so our clients in food service can protect their recipes. A budding artist in the community is copyrighting her cartoon cat.
Also new this year is joining the faculty at Lawline. This is an online-only source for live and on-demand continuing legal education. I will be teaching a course in Intellectual Property for Manufacturing Businesses, and also Intellectual Property for non-IP lawyers. You may not know I have some bona fide teaching cred: a Master of Arts in Teaching and 5 years science teaching experience. Law + teaching is my sweet spot!
If you’re reading this now, you must be a little curious about what a patent or trademark can do, or how a lawyer can help. Call or email me today.
