Three New Judges Appointed to TTAB as TTABlog Celebrates 2nd Anniversary
I knew this would be a big day for TTABlog fans (both of them), but I didn't expect this much excitement! Three new Administrative Trademark Judges have been appointed to the TTAB, bringing the total to 18. (The other 15 TTAB judges are listed here).
- Marc A. Bergsman comes to the TTAB from the Washington, D.C. office of Dickinson Wright PLLC, where he has been engaged in the private practice of law for the past twelve years. Prior to his work in private practice, Mr. Bergsman worked at the USPTO as a trademark examining attorney, trademark managing attorney, and, for five years, as an interlocutory attorney at the TTAB. He received his undergraduate degree from Miami University of Ohio and his law degree from the Cleveland Marshall College of Law, Cleveland State University.
- David Mermelstein has served with the TTAB for six years as an interlocutory attorney and, since 2005, as TTAB’s Supervisory Interlocutory Attorney. Before coming to the TTAB, he worked for several years as a trademark examining attorney. He received his undergraduate degree from New College, Hofstra University and his law degree from American University.
- Jyll Taylor has served with distinction for nearly ten years as a TTAB interlocutory attorney. Prior to her work with the TTAB, she worked for a number of years as a trademark examining attorney. She earned her undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and received her law degree from Howard University School of Law.
