Kimra and Terry Represent IP Committee at Georgia Bar’s 22nd Annual IP Law Institute

IP Committee leaders Kimra Major-Morris (Chair) and Terry Sanks (Second Vice-Chair) spent this past weekend at the Georgia Bar’s 22nd Annual Intellectual Property Law Institute. In addition to strengthening the IP Committee’s connections with the Georgia Bar’s IP Section and generally representing us, they were able to participate in the educational and social offerings, including hearing from several judges from the Federal Circuit.

Well done guys!
