WASHINGTON, DC—Harrity & Harrity, LLP has named James Bennin as Harrity’s first Minority Firm Incubator participant. Harrity launched its Minority Firm Incubator last year to help women and minorities establish their own law firms in an effort to change the disparity of minority-owned firms in the field.
Bennin was selected due to both his experience in IP law and his desire to create opportunities for minorities to succeed in underrepresented industries. He is a patent attorney with nearly 15 years of experience counseling clients on matters related to intellectual property law. His practice focuses on preparing and prosecuting patent applications in a variety of technological fields, including electrical and software technologies. Bennin has experience in private practice and as an in-house attorney.
Bennin began the Minority Firm Incubator program, which consists of four phases, Feb. 3.
