Remembering Allan Lippa

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a dear friend and colleague, Allan Lippa.  Allan was revered and respected by everyone that worked with him.  He had a long and successful career, including rising to Assistant General Counsel at Ford Global Technologies, LLC.

Allan was never too busy to have a discussion on how to approach an invention or set up an application for success. He never stopped training the newest members of patent law and patent drafting.  Allan was an integral part of McCoy Russell and we thank him for his time, his counsel, and his influence.  We know that his spirit will live on in the lives of those he touched.
