In this Law360 article, “An Attorney Wish List For The Next USPTO Director”, Colette Reiner Mayer, a partner in the firm’s Intellectual Property, was quoted regarding what attorneys want to see from the person President-elect Donald Trump picks for the job.

“The USPTO can't do much more than lobby Congress to pass legislation allowing it to keep all of its fees. The next director will have a chance to make the case that doing so would let the office hire more examiners, give examiners more time and take other steps to issue higher-quality patents,” said Colette Reiner Mayer of Morrison & Foerster LLP.
