Fish & Richardson Principal Michael Hamlin Named 2014 "40 Under 40" Honoree by the Boston Business Journal
Boston, MA, September 10, 2014 - Fish & Richardson announced today that principal Michael Hamlin has been selected as a 2014 "40 Under 40" honoree by the Boston Business Journal. The award recognizes 40 business and civic leaders, all under the age of 40, "who already are making a major impact in their respective fields and the civic life of the Boston area." Hamlin was one of only two lawyers selected from over 350 nominations, and will be recognized at a reception in Boston on October 16, 2014.
At Fish, Hamlin focuses his practice on patent prosecution, freedom-to-operate studies, opinions, due diligence investigations, and licensing. He is also frequently involved in patent litigation matters. Hamlin has a large patent prosecution practice working with clients whose businesses focus on a wide range of technologies including medical devices, sporting goods, consumer products, machine tools, and manufacturing processes.
Hamlin is currently involved with the non-profit Thomas E. Smith Foundation, which is dedicated to helping those affected by spinal cord injury (SCI) and paralysis, and finding a cure for paralysis. He has worked on a pro bono basis to prepare and file a patent application for the Look-Up LineTM warning track, which is intended to reduce the incidence of hockey players crashing headfirst into the boards of the rink and sustaining an SCI. Hamlin also advises the foundation regarding trademark issues.
Hamlin is also involved in another unique program, the Frederick P. Fish and William K. Richardson Patent Awards, which provides pro bono patent applications, and prosecution as necessary, for the inventions of high school students.
Hamlin has served as the recruiting principal for Fish's Boston office since 2011. He received his J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School in 2003, where he was on the staff of the Michigan Telecommunications and Technology Law Review, and his B.S. in mechanical engineering from the University of Alabama at Huntsville in 2000.
