Attorneys Christopher Glass and Jason Huff PhD join Meunier Carlin & Curfman (“MCC”) this week from AmLaw 200 firms. Chris Glass, formerly of Troutman Sanders, is now Of Counsel at MCC and Jason Huff, formerly of Kilpatrick Townsend, joins as an associate.

While other area firms have decreased their intellectual property attorney and agent count, MCC has added five attorneys in 2017.

“Despite many intellectual property departments shrinking in size, we have continued to steadily increase our ranks,” said managing partner, John Harbin. “We expect this growth to continue throughout 2017. I am proud of the success of our firm, and we look forward to growing MCC into the largest IP boutique in the Southeast.”
