Congratulations are in Order for Panitch Schwarze Belisario & Nadel LLP

We would like to congratulate Panitch Schwarze Belisario & Nadel LLP, a Philadelphia intellectual property law firm, for welcoming veteran trademark attorney Michael J. Leonard to its firm. Mr. Leonard will join the firm this month, as a partner and head of the Trademark and Copyright department. He will concentrate his practice in providing strategic establishment and protection of U.S. and international trademarks for a variety of clients. Mr. Leonard comes from Pepper Hamilton where he was a partner with the firm’s Intellectual Property Group.

“As part of our firm’s ongoing development, we have focused on enhancing our trademark department by adding a top-tier practitioner with significant national and international experience,” said Martin G. Belisario, Panitch Schwarze Belisario & Nadel partner. “Michael has practiced intellectual property law extensively. His global experience meshes well with our firm’s goals and existing clients”.

Panitch Schwarze Belisario & Nadel enjoys a vibrant domestic practice and a strong and growing international practice, which includes numerous clients throughout the world in industries that cover all areas of intellectual property. The firm handles all facets of trademark practice, including disputes, selection of new marks, U.S. and international trademark strategy licensing, as well as domain name and Internet issues.

“Though I have had a wonderful experience with Pepper Hamilton, joining Panitch Schwarze Belisario & Nadel presents a unique opportunity to build an international trademark practice in a boutique setting,” said Mr. Leonard. “The firm’s boutique setting, combined with its cadre of experienced trademark attorneys, provides the ideal environment to respond to clients’ needs with highly individualized attention and creative solutions.” Mr. Leonard has represented clients in publishing, computer software and technology, entertainment and sports, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, chemicals, telecommunications and the food and beverage industry.

Members of the firm’s trademark department are looking forward to working with Mr. Leonard in further developing the practice. “We are delighted that Michael will be lending his talents here,” stated Laura A. Genovese, Senior Counsel.

Again, congratulations to the Panitch Schwarze Belisario & Nadel firm for adding such a talented individual to its team! To learn more about the firm, visit http://www.panitchlaw.com/.
