Kilpatrick Townsend Partner Matias Ferrario and Associate Leland Black, Ph.D., will first present an overview of the USPTO Rules of Professional Conduct as well as common causes of grievances. They will then discuss and analyze how the Rules have been applied by the USPTO’s Office of Enrollment and Discipline in real-world situations. They will conclude by providing information about where to turn with patent practice-related ethics questions.
This valuable program is sponsored by the Charlotte Chapter of Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC).

Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP
While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
DO NOT CONVEY TO US ANY INFORMATION YOU REGARD AS CONFIDENTIAL UNTIL A FORMAL CLIENT-ATTORNEY RELATIONSHIP HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED.
If you do convey information, you recognize that we may review and disclose the information, and you agree that even if you regard the information as highly confidential and even if it is transmitted in a good faith effort to retain us, such a review does not preclude us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could be used against you.
