Introduction

I am a successful trial attorney who helps clients protect and defend their inventions in complex intellectual property litigation.  Technology companies of all sizes, from Fortune 50 companies to start-ups, have relied on me to take care of their most sensitive intellectual property matters.  I have represented companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Velcro and Insight Technologies in intellectual property litigation throughout the country and the world.  I have handled matters before federal district courts and appellate courts, as well as the International Trade Commission (ITC).  I also have managed international litigations and proceedings before the European Patent Office.

I have been named a “New England Super Lawyer” by Thomson Reuters, and a Massachusetts “Super Lawyer – Rising Star” by Law & Politics magazine and the publishers of Boston Magazine.  I was also recognized by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly as one of 15 “Up & Coming Lawyers.”

My practice also focuses on general client counseling, including strategic management of patent and trademark portfolios, validity and infringement analyses, licensing, and pre-suit investigations.  I have extensive licensing experience, including initiating programs to monetize patent portfolios.  My client-focused approach to litigation and licensing puts a premium value on the client’s input and insight and ensures a close and mutually beneficial relationship.

On Veteran’s Day, we honor those who have proudly served our country. This photo, shared by Paul Schade ’92, shows his grandfather William McClurg during World War II in the Army Corps of Engineers, 30th Engineer Battalion. William dreamed of attending Manhattan College and, after the war, enrolled under the GI Bill and was taught by Br. Austin Barry. Though he had to withdraw to find work to support his family, McClurg went on to have a successful career in engineering and always spoke highly of Manhattan, inspiring his grandson Paul to attend college in Riverdale. We’re proud to call William, Paul and all our veterans, Jaspers!

[JR: Attendees are recognized, when I do ‘the obits’  on the theory “if it’s important to some to mention in an obit, then we can spare a few prayers”. Perhaps, the time at MC was both formative and important to our comrade. And, imho, WW2 interrupted many plans. A good many went to never came back and maybe those that did had new priorities. And some that did come back couldn’t afford to finish. Dona Nobis Pacem.]

José Martin Jara Elected Board President at Leake & Watts

A Resident of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Jara Exemplifies the New Face of Philanthropy in New York City.

Yonkers, NY, October 18, 2015 –(PR.com)– José Martin Jara, Esq., has been elected president of the board of directors at Leake & Watts, an award-winning New York City nonprofit human services agency. Mr. Jara, who is a principal and national practice leader of multiemployer plans at Buck Consultants, LLC, A Xerox Company, joined the board in 2011, having learned about Leake & Watts through BoardServeNYC, a United Way resource that connects nonprofits with candidates ready to join a board. Since then, he has seen Leake & Watts nearly double in size, and he expects its rapid growth to continue during his two-year term.

Leake & Watts Executive Director Alan Mucatel remarked that Mr. Jara exemplifies the new face of philanthropy in New York City. “The current generation of supporters approach their volunteer work with the same intensity that they approach business,” Mr. Mucatel said. “They understand the need for speed and strategic thinking as the world evolves, and that if a nonprofit agency isn’t growing, then it is falling behind. José and our other board members are comfortable with change, and they help ensure that our agency can grow quickly and responsibly.”

Mr. Jara said he was attracted to the agency because of its work with at-risk populations. “Leake & Watts has used and will continue to use its core expertise to expand into new areas where human services support is greatly needed by children, adults, and families in the Greater New York area,” explained Mr. Jara who has an older sister with developmental disabilities. Leake & Watts’ dedication to helping individuals such as his sister succeed struck a chord with him. “These individuals need assistance, because they are not capable of doing it all themselves,” he said. “Providing them with educational support helps open doors for them.”

A resident of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, he added that he is firmly committed to Leake & Watts’ mission. “I am and my fellow board members are dedicated to continually growing and strengthening this remarkable agency, and helping at-risk populations through education, therapeutic support, and vocational training.”

Mr. Jara graduated with a BS in Managerial Science from Manhattan College and was awarded a JD in Law from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, Yeshiva University. He obtained an LLM and certificate in employee benefits law from Georgetown University Law Center. In addition to his service to Leake & Watts, Mr. Jara is a member of the board and chairman of the HR committee at The Center for Family Support, and is a member and recording secretary of the Cardozo Alumni Association’s Executive Committee. Cardozo Law School has honored him twice by presenting him with the BALLSA Alumnus of the Year Award and the Cardozo Alumni Association’s Volunteer Service Award.
