USPTO recognizes Tennessee patent practitioner and law firm for patent pro bono service

ATLANTA – Tennessee PATENTS is pleased to announce that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has recognized Kevin Christopher and Ridgeline Venture Law for donating significant pro bono hours in 2018 to Tennessee PATENTS. 

“The generous donation of time by patent practitioners and firms gives under-resourced inventors access to the patents system that they would otherwise not have,” said Meredith Ragains, executive director of Tennessee PATENTS. “Without their support programs such as Tennessee PATENTS could not and would not exist. We thank all the patent practitioners and firms who give their time to our Program to help inventors.”
