A presentation by distinguished patent attorney Rod D. Baker takes place at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at The Hive, 134 N.M. 4 in White Rock.
Baker’s presentation, “Changes to Patent Law and What It Might Mean to You” is sponsored by the Los Alamos Entrepreneurs’ Network and is open to the public.
Baker attended Los Alamos High School and has 24 years of experience in the law.
For the past 20 years, his practice has been limited to patents, trademarks, trade secrets, copyrights and related matters.
His experience includes the successful prosecution of hundreds of patent applications in a variety of technological fields.
He also enjoys advising clients in clearing, adopting, registering and litigating trademarks.
Baker served as an in-house patent attorney for the Samsonite Corporation in Denver, Colo., through the mid-1990’s.
The Albuquerque law firm of Peacock Myers, P.C., where he was a senior partner for nearly nine years, was then his home until 2006, when he opened his own law office.
Currently, Baker offers affordable, flexible and nimble intellectual property law services as a sole practitioner.
The New Mexico courts have used his services as an arbitrator and “special master” in intellectual property disputes.
Baker has enjoyed teaching patent law as a member of the adjunct faculty of the University of New Mexico Law School.
He received his B.S. degree in civil engineering (fluid mechanics and hydraulics emphasis) from Brigham Young University in 1985, and a J.D., with honors, from the J. Reuben Clark Law School at BYU in 1988.
Baker was born and raised in Los Alamos and still considers himself a “Hilltopper.” He lives and has his law office in Tijeras.
