Hurricane Harvey relief – Dennemeyer donates Intellectual Property services
In support of the corporations and law firms in the Houston area that are impacted by Hurricane Harvey, Dennemeyer & Co. is offering three months of free IP Docketing services, three months of free U.S. Trademark Filing services and three months of free services to administer foreign Patent Filings.
Cary Levitt, Chief Operating Officer for Dennemeyer U.S., says: “The ongoing flood devastation to the Houston area is dreadful. It is affecting not only personal lives, but all ongoing business. We know that Intellectual Property work cannot and will not stop for a natural disaster.” The IP community is small and supportive. As part of that community, Dennemeyer is eager to assist its clients and colleagues.
Leon Steinberg, Managing Director for North America, explains: “We discussed the best avenue to leverage our strengths to help. Once the rain stops, it will still take businesses an extended time to recover from the destruction, which is why we are donating our services to the companies and law firms in the Houston area. Our offer is to serve as an extended IP office.”
Dennemeyer will provide, without charging any service fee, three months of IP Docketing services, three months of U.S. Trademark Filing services and three months of services to administer foreign Patent Filings to those in the greater Houston area.
The opening of the Unified Patent Court (UPC) on June 1, 2023, raises questions about potential changes to existing licensing regimes.
