Republic Restoratives, a D.C.-based, woman-owned distillery, wanted to dedicate a whiskey to the women who inspired them. The United States Patent and Trademark Office, however, disagreed with their vision and rejected their trademark application for being “named after a living person.”

Fortunately, Jeremy Peter Green was their trademark attorney. He quickly drafted and filed an Office Action Response, citing various precedents and statutes, and the rejection was overturned. Now Rodham Rye is being sold in a multitude of stores around the East Coast.
