About Our Speaker
Jason Lott, Managing Attorney, Trademarks Customer Outreach

Jason Lott says about himself, “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” For some people, that’s a punchline… For him it’s true… He says, “As the Attorney Advisor for Trademarks Customer Outreach at the USPTO, it’s my job to teach small business owners and entrepreneurs about trademarks: what they are, why they’re important, and the benefits of federal trademark registration. My passion for the subject is evident in my live presentations and my knowledge is based on working in the field for over 20 years. I’m happiest when I see understanding register in attendee’s eyes and excitement dawn as they realize how a strong trademark can help them grow their businesses. ”
