PHILADELPHIA, April 27, 2015—The board of the Harriton Association presented Duane Morris partner Lewis F. Gould, Jr. with the Charles Thomson Award at its annual meeting on April 26, 2015. The Harriton Association maintains Harriton House, an historic house built in Bryn Mawr, Pa. in 1704, whose most famous resident was Charles Thomson, the secretary of the Continental Congress.
Gould was honored for his support of the Harriton Association for more than 20 years, especially in regards to real estate acquisitions and the growth of the organization. The award has been given only once before, to Chef Walter Staib, a supporter of Harriton House, 18th century food expert and proprietor of City Tavern in Philadelphia.
Gould is the immediate past chairman of Duane Morris' Intellectual Property Practice Group, having served in that capacity from 1999 to 2011. For more than 40 years, he has focused his practice on intellectual property law, with emphasis on domestic and international patents and trademark matters. Gould advises clients on a broad spectrum of patent and related issues in a variety of technologies, as well as in trademark and copyright matters that include clearance, registration and litigation. He also manages patent and trademark litigation before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and in U.S. federal courts.
Gould is a graduate of Pennsylvania State University's Dickinson School of Law. He received his undergraduate degree from Temple University, where he is a member of the Board of Trustees. Gould also serves on the Board of Trustees of Temple University Health System and is the Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Fox Chase Cancer Center.
