Attendance is limited to ACC members and their invited in-house counsel guests, as well as prospective ACC members. ACC membership is open to attorneys who practice law as in-house counsel employees of organizations and who do not hold themselves out to the public for the practice of law.

Thanks to Morris, Manning & Martin, the CLE lunch program is complimentary for the first 130 ACC members who register on-line. Thereafter, the fee for current ACC members is $25, and, in all circumstances, $35 for non-members, including prospective members. A CLE credit of one (1) hour is being applied for, and if approved, will be submitted to the Georgia State Bar for attendees licensed to practice in Georgia.


Daniel Sineway takes a strategic, business-focused approach to protecting the IP rights of his clients. He is adept at managing and shepherding patent and trademark portfolios of all sizes, preparing and filing patent and trademark applications, drafting license agreements, and otherwise guiding his clients through difficult IP issues. Additionally, Daniel helps his clients connect technical details and legal requirements to business goals and needs.

He represents companies of all sizes in various technology sectors including wireless telecommunications, e-commerce, and financial payment systems. Dan also advises clients on the creation, development, and management of IP portfolios and the acquisition and exploitation of IP rights through licensing or litigation.

Ashley Klein focuses her practice on trademark matters and intellectual property litigation. She routinely supports clients with identifying, protecting, and enforcing their U.S. and international intellectual property rights. Ashley has experience handling intellectual property disputes, particularly patent and trademark infringement claims and works closely with foreign law firms, actively assisting clients in Europe, Asia, and South America with their trademark portfolios.
