|David Keltie (1938-2016)|
Besides his extensive IP experience, the AmeriKat will personally remember David as a spectacular dining companion who charmed and entertained his guests with stories punctuated by his boisterous laughter. She will also remember David for the way in which he nurtured and supported the talent of his junior associates (indeed, the first time the AmeriKat met David was at a dinner in 2009 where he was doing just that with one of his rising trade mark attorneys). It is not surprising, therefore, that together with his dedicated team, David was able to grow Keltie from strength to strength - now with 12 partners and over 30 qualified practitioners.
The IPKat understands from Keltie's website that there will be a public celebration of David's life in the coming weeks. Details of this and other tributes will be made available on Keltie's website (here) and their IPCopy blog (here), soon. The Kat will also alert readers to details of the event once they are available.
In the meantime, donations in David's memory may be made to the Marie Curie Hospice in Hampstead, London.
