Congratulations to our neighbor, the USPTO Midwest Regional Office, on five years in Detroit!

Sheppard v. Matal! It’s not an IP case. The USPTO Acting Director and
Midwest Regional Office Director faced off in ping pong at Burris Law!

The epic table tennis match resulted in a tie after USPTO Midwest Regional Office Director Christal Sheppard and Acting USPTO Director Joe Matal stopped in to Burris Law during a tour of the area near the USPTO offices in Detroit’s Rivertown.

The USPTO is celebrating the fifth anniversary of the Elijah J. McCoy Midwest Regional Office, the first of the four USPTO regional offices. Burris Law is proud to have the USPTO as our upstairs neighbor at Stroh River Place.

Congratulations to the USPTO on five years in Detroit!
