Congratulations to the USPTO’s New Regional Director Russ Slifer

My congratulations to Russ Slifer, the new Regional Director of the USPTO’s Denver office.  I have known Russ since he started his career in patent law in 1994 at the Schwegman firm, and followed his career through his private practice representing several of America’s top high technology companies, to his many years as Chief Patent Counsel for Micron.  The USPTO is fortunate to have gained Russ for their leadership team.  He has always demonstrated a mastery of his craft, is amazingly productive, shows sound judgement in all his affairs, is a progressive manager, and has been a leader in every aspect of his professional life.  No doubt he will provide Michelle Lee and the USPTO a strong leader for the Denver office, continue to help the Office evolve and adapt to the ever changing needs of industry and policy, and get things done.  Once again, my congratulations to Russ and the USPTO.
