Nine members of Lowenstein’s Patent Counseling & Prosecution team have received recognition from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for their proven commitment to pro bono work on behalf of under-resourced inventors.

During the virtual 2022 Utah IP Summit, sponsored by the Intellectual Property Section of the Utah State Bar, Kevin O. Grange, Nathan O. Greene, Eugene Mishchenko, Madhumita Datta, Sam Noel, Michael J. Campolongo, Beverly Lamberson, Spencer Thevenin, and Casey Wareham were acknowledged for the extensive services they have provided through MiCasa Resource Center’s ProBoPat program in Denver.

In 2017, Lowenstein’s Utah office began accepting pro bono patent cases through ProBoPat, a program which encourages the USPTO to “work with and support ... the establishment of pro bono programs designed to assist financially under-resourced independent inventors and small businesses.” Through ProBoPat, qualified inventors who are residents of Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, Utah, or Wyoming receive patent preparation and prosecution legal services.

Lowenstein attorneys have met with inventors, performed prior art searches, and prepared utility and design patent applications for inventors in the Mountain West through ProBoPat. This is the fifth consecutive year that members of Lowenstein’s team have been individually recognized.
