Boyle Fredrickson Attorneys Recognized as 2015 Up & Coming Lawyers by the Wisconsin Law Journal
Sarah Wong and Eric Schlevensky are among 30 Milwaukee attorneys who will be recognized by the Wisconsin Law Journal at the publication’s seventh annual Up & Coming Lawyers award event on September 30 at the Harley-Davidson Museum. Honorees with eight years or fewer of experience were chosen for their handling of challenging legal issues, steps taken toward improving the justice system, their initiative and zeal for the practice of law, their commitment to the community, and the positive effect they have on the lives of others. Each will be featured in a video shown at the event and will be profiled in the Wisconsin Law Journal’s special Up and Coming magazine.
Wong earned her law degree from Marquette University Law School where she served as editor-in-chief of the Marquette Intellectual Property Law Review and was on the executive board of the Intellectual Property Law Society. She earned her bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering from Washington University in St. Louis. Her intellectual property law work varies from patent and trademark prosecution to post-grant proceedings. Wong, who joined the firm in 2011, is a trailblazer in the new legal procedure of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office of Inter Partes Review, a procedure that has been conducted since 2012 under the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act. She is among some of the first lawyers to practice this form of patent validation and has proven her expertise by working with others in the firm to achieve multiple successful outcomes.
Schlevensky earned his law degree from Marquette University Law School, where he was a member of the Marquette Intellectual Property Law Review.
