Chance Encounters 

In an effort to escape from a downpour, Edward S. Rogers, a third year at University of Michigan law school, took shelter in Frank R. Reed’s lecture about trademark and copyright. Although not enrolled in the class, Rogers was so fascinated by the subject that he chose to attend the remaining lectures. Upon graduation in 1883, Rogers reached out to Reed, and the two quickly grew their IP empire in Chicago, Illinois. Over the past 125 years, Pattishall has continued to expand and tackle some of the most complex and interesting IP battles.
