Attorneys from Myers Bigel Sibley & Sajovec, P.A. (Myers Bigel) continue to share best practices in protecting innovations with a slate of high-profile speaking engagements and thought leadership this spring.
Several Myers Bigel attorneys are being tapped this spring for their thought leadership on patent law and intellectual property issues. Julie Richardson (Mechanical/Biotechnology/Trademark) and Lynne Borchers (Litigation/Trademark) were featured in the April issue of Intellectual Asset Management magazine, while Borchers was also quoted in the April 5 article, “Triangle companies welcome efforts to rein in patent trolls” appearing in the (Raleigh) News & Observer.
Other recent outreach includes Litigation attorney Peter Siddoway being published this month in the American Intellectual Property Law Association’s AIPLA Quarterly Journal as co-author of, “The New Battlefield: One Year of Inter Partes Review Under the America Invents Act.”
On May 2, Siddoway will join Myers Bigel Litigation attorney Lance Lawson in presenting, “Understanding Inter Partes Review: Recent Decisions, Trends, and Effective Strategies” at the spring meeting of the Carolina Patent and Trademark Law Association in Charlotte. Later next month, attorney Shawna Lemon (Biotechnology/Chemical/Trademark) will be hosting the 2014 AIPLA Women in IP Networking Event May 22. Earlier this spring, Lemon moderated the AIPLA Women in IP Law webinar, “Mentorship and Sponsorship – The Road to Success” discussing how mentorship and sponsorship, or lack thereof, affects advancement and retention of women in IP and the legal field in general.
