Procopio News and Events -- August 2019
In Procopio's August 2019 newsletter, we provide links to a number of informative articles, including:
- The latest on the California Consumer Privacy Act, sweeping new legislation that imposes a number of new obligations on covered businesses while granting new rights to California residents;
- A new California law banning employers and educators from discriminating on the basis of traits historically associated with race, "including, but not limited to, hair texture and protective hairstyles"; and
- A new policy by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office requiring foreign trademark applicants and registrants to identify a U.S. licensed attorney prior to examination of a trademark application.
We also announced the hiring of our latest Partner, Robert Marasco. A former federal prosecutor and seasoned litigator, he will represent clients in the health care industry with legal services including fraud and abuse, privacy, and data security compliance.
We also shared two new videos, one with Partner Marie Burke Kenny discussing our Labor and Employment Law practice, and another with Partner Todd Neal detailing our significant litigation practice.
Finally, we included a roundup of other news and events we featured on social media in the last month.
