Michael A. Oropallo, a partner at Hiscock & Barclay, LLP, moderated and spoke at the New York State Bar Association Intellectual Property Law Section’s Annual Meeting on January 27, 2009. Oropallo was among a panel of worldwide patent practitioners that included Fortune 500 companies and senior practitioners who discussed recent patent developments around the world.

Oropallo has handled the litigation, trial and appeal of complex civil matters for the past twenty years. While focusing primarily on patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret and unfair competition matters, as well as environmental litigation and toxic tort matters, he has a wide breadth of federal and state jury trial experience and regularly counsels clients on litigation and non-litigation alternatives to legal disputes. He is a member of the New York Bar Association’s Executive Committee of the Intellectual Property Section, as well as the International Trademark Association, and the Copyright Society.

More than 5,000 members of the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) from around the state were expected to attend the 132nd Annual Meeting, sharing insights and experiences, from January 26-January 31, 2009. The 74,000-member NYSBA is the official statewide organization of lawyers in New York and the largest voluntary state bar association in the nation.
