DENVER (May 1) – Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) awarded 2019 Patent Pro Bono Achievement Certificates to Torrey Spink, Aaron Swehla, Suzanne Walts, and Evelyn Zhao, all attorneys in the firm’s Denver office.

In addition, Kilpatrick Townsend was recognized as a firm for contributing a combined 1,138 hours to pro bono patent programs across the country in 2019.
“Our commitment to pro bono service is well known, and every attorney who joins our firm knows it is one of our most important priorities,” said Tamara Serwer Caldas, who heads the firm's Pro Bono Program. “It is so rewarding to be able to make a difference in the communities where we live and work.”
While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
