Attendees included entrepreneurs, seasoned executives, grad students and MBAs.
As usual, this year the American Intellectual Property Lawyers Association hosted it’s annual meeting in Washington, D.C., where Goldstein Patent Law represented itself well.

One of the firm’s core values is maintaining a high performance environment, to serve our clients and challenge ourselves to excel. This year, Richard decided to take an active role in sharing this model of communication with our industry.
In December 2012, a delegation of IP attorneys representing the American Intellectual Property Lawyers Association traveled to Cuba to engage face-to-face with Cuban officials, lawyers, and leaders from government and business, to discuss key issues of intellectual property protection.
Mr. Goldstein was a member of this delegation, and had the opportunity to dig deeply into administrative procedures for patent and trademark applications, and enforcement of IP rights in the Courts. The delegation was pleased to be invited to lend their IP experience to an economy on the verge of explosive economic growth.
