Georgia Lawyers for the Arts and the Intellectual Property Sections of the State Bar of Georgia and the Atlanta Bar Association are collaborating with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to establish an innovative pro bono program to assist inventors in need of legal counsel. Local innovation supports the local economy, and this program will help ensure Georgia’s inventors have the legal protection they need to thrive.
SGR is proud to be a Founding Benefactor of this innovative pro bono program. Joyce Klemmer and Gibson Lanier, both members of the Atlanta Bar Association IP Section Board, also serve on the Advisory Committee of the Georgia Patents Pro Bono Project. The opening ceremony for the Georgia Patents Pro Bono Project will be held on Tuesday, February 17, 2015, at 5:00 p.m. Special guests include US Rep. Doug Collins serving the 9th District of Georgia (a member of the Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet) and representatives from the USPTO.
