I am happy to introduce Professor David Hricik as a new Patently-O contributor. Hricik is likely the most well-known and well-respected expert on U.S. patent lawyer ethics and so it makes sense that his focus on Patently-O will also be on patent law ethics, patent lawyer malpractice, and inequitable conduct. His two-volume treatise on patent ethics (co-authored with Mercedes Meyer) is published by Oxford University Press and has become a required reference for patent attorneys dealing with our regularly arising ethical questions. Hricik has been working in patent law for almost 25 years: The first 14 as a (patent) litigator and the last ten as a law professor.
Hricik will be blogging at: www.patentlyo.com/hricik. We’ve added a new tab at the top of the page that links to Hricik’s site.
His first three posts are up, including Best Mode, the AIA, and Conflicts of Interest.
Welcome David Hricik.
