Happy 15th Anniversary!

Yesterday, our sponsor, Cascadia Intellectual Property, celebrated 15 years of service to the legal community! The firm was founded on July 20, 1999. Here are ten interesting facts about Cascadia Intellectual Property:

  1. The firm was formed 30 years after the first moon landing.
  2. We are international. Six of us originate from outside the United States, including the Republic of Georgia, Poland, Russia, Japan, and China.
  3. Our mascot is a Shetland sheepdog, named Taisho, which means “Boss” in Japanese.
  4. We are multilingual. We speak eight foreign languages, including French, Georgian, Polish, Russian, Tartar, Japanese, Spanish, and Mandarin.
  5. The firm is in the tallest office building in the Lake City neighborhood.
  6. We like to eat. We spoil ourselves with ethic delicacies, like khatchapuri (Georgian cheese bread), borscht (Russian beet soup), Zapiekanki (Polish street sandwiches), and chichi dango (Japanese sweet rice treats).
  7. We take our summer interns geocaching at lunch time when the weather is nice.
  8. We are green thumbs. We have a Chrysanthemum that is three years old and Krista keeps a small grove of avocado trees in her office.
  9. Patrick is still using the same desk that he first started with.
  10. We are musical. We play the piano, saxaphone and guitar.
