Join Matt Gardlik at the IndyBar’s first-ever Tech Show

Matt will present, “Zoom Deposition & The Future of Virtual Court.” As our nation practices social distancing to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, jurisdictions across the country have encouraged attorneys to conduct depositions remotely. Matt will share experiences and considerations to account for when taking or defending a remote or virtual deposition.

As part of this full-day show, you’ll also hear from industry leaders on topics ranging from virtual court resources, time and billing software, digital marketing, virtual reception options, legal research and more. Representatives will also be on-site to demonstrate software and products.

Trademark Owners Beware of Fraudulent Solicitations

September 20, 2021

Entities such as Patent and Trademark Office, LLC, and Patent and Trademark Bureau, LLC give a false impression that they are the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), scamming more than 2,900 U.S. trademark registrants out of millions of dollars for inflated, and often fake, renewal fees. If you receive suspicious correspondence, check the USPTO scam alert webpage, contact the Trademark Assistance Center, and contact one of the attorneys at our firm to help evaluate the validity of the correspondence. Remember, the USPTO will never ask you for social security numbers or credit card numbers in general correspondence.
