About Maurice Klitzman
The award was established as a lasting and appropriate memorial to Mr. Klitzman for his active service to AIPLA. His heart and soul were dedicated to training young patent attorneys and helping them to develop a broad approach to IP Law with a conviction to moral principles and ethics. His career was a unique blend of corporate IP law, heart-felt support for the inventor, and shaping the mindset of future IP leaders.
Mr. Klitzman served as a member of the Board of Directors and a member of the Amicus Committee. He also took an active role in educating many new patent attorneys, both as a senior corporate patent counsel and as an adjunct law professor.
