Attorney Rod D. Baker will give a presentation regarding intellectual property and the ongoing major changes in U.S. patent law to the Los Alamos Entrepreneurs’ Network at 6 p.m., April 26 at The Hive.
Baker was born and raised in Los Alamos and still considers himself a “Hilltopper.”
He has 24 years experience in the law and for the last 20 years, his practice has been limited to patents, trademarks, trade secrets, copyrights, and related matters.
Baker’s 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.
He served as an in-house patent attorney for the Samsonite Corporation in Denver, Colo., through the mid-1990’s.
Baker was a senior partner for nearly nine years in the Albuquerque law firm of Peacock Myers, P.C., until 2006 when he opened his own law office.
Currently, he 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 lives and has his law office in Tijeras.
This presentation is open to the public. The Hive is at 134 N.M. 4 next to Metzger’s in White Rock.
