Leaders Circle Sponsorship

Federal Circuit Bar Association Leaders Circle sponsors benefit from and help guide the Association’s premier national outreach. Leaders Circle participants, both firms and corporations, stand among the most skilled in the profession. With their acumen, Leaders Circle sponsors engage core developments significant to the Federal Circuit justice community through over 20 committees (ranging from Amicus to Patent Litigation, International Trade, Government Contract, Patent and Trademark Office).

Leaders Circle sponsors “Make a Difference.” Moreover, while doing so, they provide unique interactive professional opportunities and recognition for the members of their organizations and for their designees. Levels tailored to a variety of circumstances are available.
