USPTO announces recipients of the 2019 Patent Pro Bono Achievement Certificate

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) yesterday announced the recipients of the 2019 Patent Pro Bono Achievement Certificate in recognition of individuals and law firms who help make the Patent Pro Bono Program available to financially under-resourced inventors and small businesses.

In 2019, more than 74 volunteer patent practitioners reported 50 or more hours of patent pro bono service to a regional patent pro bono program, and more than 27 law firms reported 100 or more hours. To acknowledge their contributions, the USPTO provided certificates to the patent practitioners and law firms and listed their names on the Patent Pro Bono Program webpage.

“I want to congratulate all of the recipients for their dedication and their time, as well as for their commitment to help under-resourced inventors and small businesses,” said Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the USPTO Andrei Iancu.

Together, the patent practitioner and law firm certificates recognize the continued efforts of those who have improved access to the Pro Bono program across all 50 states. The program has been in place since 2015. To date, over 1600 patent professionals have volunteered their time and resources to help make the Patent Pro Bono Program a success.
