Kirby Drake Addresses American Chemical Society

Klemchuk Kubasta also serves as Gold Sponsor of CHAL Events.

Dallas, TX, September 21, 2012 --( Kirby Drake, a partner with Klemchuk Kubasta LLP (KK LLP), a leading full-service intellectual property (IP) law firm, addressed the American Chemical Society (ACS) as part of the Chemistry and the Law (CHAL) Division at the National Meeting held August 19-23 in Philadelphia. Her speech, “IP Issues in Advertising and Promotion of the Chemical Industry,” offered a variety of ways to approach intellectual property concerns pertaining to advertising in the chemical industry. Klemchuk Kubasta also served as a Gold Sponsor of the CHAL Division reception as well as the CHAL Luncheon where Judge Pauline Newman of the Federal Circuit was the keynote speaker.

Drake’s extensive background in pharmaceutical and chemical patent preparation/prosecution and litigation has been strengthened through her long-standing membership and involvement in ACS. With more than 164,000 members, ACS is the world’s largest scientific society and one of the world’s leading sources of authoritative scientific information.

“To adequately represent chemical and pharmaceutical companies, it’s important to know the intricacies that even scientists don’t always understand,” said Drake. “ACS is an organization that not only educates its members on the chemical industry, but facilitates discussion and collaboration between all types and degrees of people who work in chemical-related fields. I’m honored to be an active member of ACS as well as the CHAL Division and look forward to my continued work with ACS.”

As a member of the ACS Dallas-Forth Local Section, Drake will serve as the General Chair of the 2014 Southwest Regional Meeting held in Fort Worth, Texas. ACS Regional Meetings reflect the diverse professional interests in their geographic regions, and generally feature three- to four-day technical programs, poster sessions and two-day exhibits.
