Firm Partner Oliver A. Ruiz recently participated in the Federal Bar Association’s Capitol Hill Day, in his role as President of the FBA’s South Florida Chapter, which is currently the 5th largest chapter in the country. Throughout the day, Mr. Ruiz met with Members of Congress to advocate for our federal courts and to discuss issues that are important to federal practice.
Firm Partner, John Cyril Malloy III, co-moderated an advanced “Table Topic Presentation” this morning at the annual meeting of the International Trademark Association on the subject of “Trade Dress vs. Design Patents: Friend or Foe?” In attendance were many colleagues in the intellectual property field from around the country and as far away as Japan.
Firm attorney Meredith Mendez is serving as a Co-Chair of The Women’s Fund of Miami-Dade RAISE THE BAR Event. Malloy & Malloy is also a sponsor of the Event. Every year, the event gets larger and more successful. In the past few years, there was over 400 attendees at the event. Since 2005, RAISE THE BAR has raised close to $300,000 to fund the Woman's Fund grant making program in support of community organizations that work with survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking including services such as legal assistance, shelter, counseling and education.
The event features an open bar, hors d’oeuvres and a silent auction. It will be held on Thursday, June 2, 2016 at the Chapman Conference Center at Miami Dade College. Tickets can be purchased at https://womensfundmiami.org/event/raise-the-bar/.
The firm's senior counsel, John Fulton, has been reappointed to serve a second term on the Florida Bar’s Intellectual Property Law Certification Committee.
Firm partner Oliver A. Ruiz was honored to become a Fellow of the Foundation of the Federal Bar Association. Becoming a Fellow of the Foundation is an honor accorded to only a very small number of Federal Bar Association members, and it is predicated on an individual’s demonstrated commitment to, and leadership within, the FBA and the legal community.
