Howard & Howard IP Attorneys Receive Rossman Award
Bloomfield Hills, Michigan - January 23, 2006: Howard & Howard intellectual property attorneys, Jeffrey A. Sadowski and Trent K. English, were recently selected to receive the Patent and Trademark Office Society’s prestigious Rossman Memorial Award for their article which appeared in the Journal of the Patent and Trademark Office Society. The award is conferred annually by the Society to those whose Journal article made the greatest contribution to the fields of Patent, Trademark and Copyright law during the period of time from July 2004 to June 2005.
Sadowski and English’s article, “Extending Provisional Rights Beyond 35 U.S.C. 154(d)”, made the argument that, under certain conditions, the time period for measuring provisional rights (35 U.S.C. §154(d)) for continuation and divisional patents should begin when a corresponding parent application publishes and not when the later-filed continuation or divisional application publishes. The article appeared in the Journal’s May 2005 issue.
Factors taken in to consideration for the award include accuracy, depth of research, originality, readability, timeliness of the subject, and potential for impact on the existing system. The award will be presented to Sadowski and English at the Annual Meeting for the Patent and Trademark Office Society in Washington, D.C. on February 28, 2006.
Mr. Sadowski concentrates his practice in litigation and prosecution in various aspects of patent, trademark, copyright and computer law. He is a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers and a leading authority on many different patent, trademark and copyright law issues.
Mr. Sadowski received a B.S.M.E. degree, magna cum laude, from the Univeristy of Michigan in 1974 and a J.D. degree from the University of Michigan Law School in 1977. He is a member of Tau Beta Pi, Pi Tau Sigma, and Phi Delta Phi. Mr. Sadowski is admitted to practice in Michigan and is registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Mr. Sadowski has practiced in more than 29 jurisdictions throughout the United States, as well as six Courts of Appeals and the Court of Claims.
He is a member of the State Bar of Michigan, the Oakland County Bar Association, and the American Bar Association and its sections on Litigation and Patent, Trademark and Copyright Law. He is also a member of the Michigan Patent Law Association, the American Intellectual Property Law Association and its committee on Federal Practice and Procedure, and the International Trademark Association (INTA) and its Trademark Enforcement Committee. Mr. Sadowski has lectured throughout the U.S. to trade groups and other organizations on various patent and trademark issues, including conducting a recent roundtable discussion on intellectual property and the internet.
Mr. English concentrates his practice in patent, trademark and copyright law, with a particular emphasis in mechanical and medical device technologies. He has substantial experience in patent preparation and prosecution, and conducting product clearance investigations including rendering associated legal opinions. Mr. English is a member of the State Bar of Michigan and is registered to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
He received a B.S. degree in Civil Engineering in 1996 and an M.S. degree in Environmental Engineering in 1997, both from Micghian State University. He was a consulting engineer at Lawson-Fisher Associates where he conducted detailed analyses of combined sewer, sanitary sewer and separate storm sewer systems, and assisted clients with regulatory compliance issues associated with the Clean Water Act. Mr. English also worked as a project engineer at Triad Engineering Incorporated designing and analyzing sewer systems and assisting clients in the bidding process for municipal construction projects. He was also an intern in Howard & Howard's intellectual property law internship program from July 2000 to May of 2004.
