Washington, D.C., associate Keisha Hylton-Rodic was featured in the ABA’s Member Pulse newsletter in the “Member Spotlight” segment.

Keisha, who has Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry, described herself as a “lawyer-scientist.” She noted that while Intellectual Property law is “a crucial component of the vast majority of business decisions,” it is “not traditionally appreciated except by the patent attorney!”

When asked how her ABA membership has benefitted her, Keisha said:

“The ABA has me given opportunities to build my leadership skills. Additionally, my committee work has kept me current on legal developments. For instance, working with Division I on proposed rules for the recently enacted America Invents Act (AIA) enabled me to assist clients and colleagues who were not as familiar with the new legal landscape.”
