On July 9, 2013, Fitch Even partner Nicholas T. Peters gave a presentation on “Intellectual Property Law Practice: United States and Mexico” at Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) in Chicago. Nick spoke to a class consisting of lawyers from Mexico interested in learning about intellectual property practice in the United States and working with English-speaking counsel.
Nick’s presentation was part of the English for Lawyers course offered by the university as a segment of their English Language Program, an academic-intensive program that aims primarily at assisting international students and adult professionals in developing their English language proficiency to achieve a higher fluency level.
The UNAM Chicago campus was founded in 2001 with the mission of extending the university’s academic programs and services to interested individuals and institutions in the Midwest, while working to promote a better understanding of Mexico and the United States.
Nick’s IP law practice currently focuses on sophisticated patent portfolio management and the prosecution of complex patents. He also has extensive experience in “atypical” practices at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office including reissues, reexaminations, and oral argument before the appeal board.
