BG Law Hosts International Intellectual Property Lawyers In Washington, D.C.
Mark Brutzkus, Alison Grabell and Jeffrey Kobulnick hosted two events for intellectual property lawyers during the May 2012 Annual Meeting of the International Trademark Association (INTA) in Washington D.C. Attorneys from Europe, China, Latin America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand attended the events. BG Law maintains a network of foreign attorneys to represent our clients in trademark, licensing, copyright and related matters outside the United States. BG Law has developed close relationships with our foreign counterparts to assure that our clients’ intellectual property rights are protected in every country where they conduct business or anticipate conducting business.
This year, the INTA Annual Meeting attracted nearly 10,000 intellectual property attorneys – a record attendance – from around the world for a week of seminars, continuing legal education, business development and representational events. In addition to the hosted events, Jeff moderated a Table Topic discussion at INTA’s request on the topic of Giving Back: Pro Bono Opportunities for Trademark Attorneys, which proved to be an enthusiastic discussion among legal professionals from six countries. Jeff is a Project Team Leader for INTA’s recently formed Pro Bono Committee, and also serves as Vice Chair of the INTA Saul Lefkowitz Moot Court Competition Committee. The Lefkowitz competition is the only moot court competition in the United States dedicated to current issues in trademark law.
This was BG Law’s fourth year attending the Annual Meeting and hosting events. Alison and Jeff have attended throughout their years in practice.
