Klemchuk Kubasta LLP hosts 6th Annual Ethics CLE for IP Lawyers

The Intellectual Property law firm of Klemchuk Kubasta LLP will be hosting its Annual Ethics CLE for IP Lawyers on Friday, May 7. The event will feature Jett Hanna, who will be presenting topics on patent law with regard to professional liability claims avoidance and ethical issues. The CLE attendees will receive 1.5 hours of ethics credit.

Darin M. Klemchuk, a partner with Klemchuk Kubasta LLP, explained “Texas attorneys often have difficulty satisfying their required hours of ethics CLE credit, but our firm sees this as an opportunity. First, a half-year of ethics credit can be satisfied in one sitting. Second, the program is tailored to issues that are particularly timely to intellectual property attorneys. Third, local attorneys are given a great opportunity to network with other professionals. And last but not least, this is all offered in an informal environment. We’ve been overwhelmed with the positive response from attendees.”
