David C. Berry recently received a Patent Pro Bono Achievement Certificate from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Patent attorneys who contributed a minimum of 50 hours of pro bono service in a calendar year to help make the Patent Pro Bono Program available to financially under-resourced inventors are eligible to receive the certificate.
In 2014, David was instrumental in the establishment of the State Bar of Michigan’s Patent Pro Bono Project, a collaboration between the State Bar and the Intellectual Property Law Section. Since its launch, the Patent Project has placed more than 30 low-income inventors with patent attorneys to help them patent their inventions. The Patent Project owes much of its success to David’s tireless dedication and leadership over the past five years.
David is Of Counsel at Brooks Kushman PC and past chair of the State Bar of Michigan Intellectual Property Law Section.
