The Firm congratulates Associate, Mary Beth Hasty, for her recent selection to join the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) as an Attorney Advisor (Trademarks). Pursuant to federal government ethics rules, Ms. Hasty is withdrawing as Attorney of Record from all Firm matters, and once appointed, will be recused from any matter represented by the Firm.
The USPTO is lucky to have her. Ms. Hasty started her legal career at Malloy & Malloy, P.L., and demonstrated great knowledge and skill in the areas of Trademark Prosecution and Disputes/Litigation. She is expected to take the Oath of Office in October 2020.
