AUSTIN, TX (PRWEB) June 28, 2016
The international law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP, its Austin office, and Austin shareholder Ross Spencer Garsson recently supported the Autism Speaks 8k Run & 1k Fun Run. The event’s goal was for family, friends, and co-workers to join together, have fun, and help raise awareness of autism. Greenberg Traurig sponsored runners and a station to distribute water and cheer on race participants.
The annual event, founded in Austin in 2012, has raised more than $500,000 for Autism Speaks, a leading autism science and advocacy organization. This year alone, over $100,000 was raised.
“Due to a personal connection with autism, my family and I have participated in this and other Autism Speaks events since 2005,” said Garsson. “This organization effectively provides much-needed services and support to families and communities impacted by autism.”
“We are proud to sponsor the Autism Speaks Run and to support this very worthy cause. We are especially proud of Ross and his family for their strong commitment to raising awareness and supporting families who deal with autism daily,” said Darrell R. Windham, Greenberg Traurig’s Austin co-managing shareholder.
Garsson has more than 20 years of experience practicing intellectual property and technology law. He focuses his practice on intellectual property litigation, patent prosecution, and intellectual property portfolio management in a variety of technology areas, including chemical, nanotechnology, semiconductor, and computer technologies. Garsson has litigated numerous intellectual property disputes in state and federal district courts, in the U.S. Court of Appeals, and at the U.S. International Trade Commission.
