November 2009

CONCORD, MA, November 24, 2009—Intellectual property (IP) law firm Hamilton Brook Smith Reynolds congratulates Mark B. Solomon, a principal and shareholder with the firm, as he concludes a successful year as President of the Boston Patent Law Association (BPLA).

Under Mr. Solomon’s leadership, the BPLA has maintained high standards in fulfilling its mission of education, service, and community, and continued to improve the organization and members’ individual practices.

Mr. Solomon activated four new initiatives for the BPLA. These initiatives focus on outreach to leaders in the local and national political, legal, and science communities to expand opportunities for BPLA members and science and engineering professionals. The initiatives include:

  1. Creating an IP Advisor position to advise state leaders on IP matters;
  2. Establishing a U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) pilot expansion office in Massachusetts to facilitate local patent examiner jobs and attract technology investments;
  3. Proposing a new Local Rule to the Federal Judiciary to encourage IP litigants to choose Massachusetts as a litigation venue; and
  4. Reinstituting the Inventors Weekend with the Museum of Science to promote the sciences.

In addition to the new initiatives, Mr. Solomon ensured the BPLA had a strong calendar of events and was active in the public community of IP law through the BPLA’s submitting Amicus Briefs to the highest Courts handling patent cases, presenting Comments to the USPTO, and interacting with the local judiciary and national IP Bar associations.

Hamilton Brook Smith Reynolds celebrates the energy Mr. Solomon provided to the BPLA this past year and the guidance he will bring to its Board this coming year.
