Ward Law Office is very excited to announce that Ms. Amy Rinaldo has now joined the law firm of Ward Law Office LLC, effective May 1, 2021, as an Attorney at Law.

Ms. Rinaldo has extensive experience as a Registered Patent Attorney before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

In addition, Amy also has extensive experience in the regulatory field. She has developed an expertise in FDA laws, as well as advertising laws. This combination allows Amy to assist clients in not only acquiring exclusive rights to their inventions, but also how must to leverage those assets in a regulated fields to avoid governmental interference.  She has also worked with university technology transfer offices, and previously taught classes in patent practitioner ethics.

In her new role at Ward Law Office, Ms. Rinaldo will be involved in both management of the firm’s trademark legal services, as well as the preparation and prosecution of patent and trademark applications for clients.
