Fredrikson attorney Eric J. Snustad has been appointed to the Minnesota Orchestral Association’s board of directors. The Minnesota Orchestra’s mission is to enrich, inspire and serve our community as an enduring symphony orchestra internationally recognized for its artistic excellence.
Snustad expresses, “I could not be more excited to volunteer with the Minnesota Orchestra. Their music is amazing, and it is a special time at Orchestra Hall with the arrival of new Music Director Thomas Søndergård. For our community, having such a high caliber orchestra is a wonderful ‘quality of life’ gift. Some of our favorite family events have centered around bringing our kids to see the Orchestra’s amazing movie events, where a film is played on an enormous screen while the score is performed live by the Minnesota Orchestra. The Orchestra is a wonderful force in bringing energy and economic activity to downtown Minneapolis.”
Snustad is an officer and shareholder in Fredrikson’s Intellectual Property Group. He focuses on prosecuting and managing patents, and does a great deal of work helping clients avoid the patents of competitors. When competitors have invalid patents, Snustad works with litigators to attack those patents in court or, when appropriate, he asks the Patent Office to reconsider the validity of the patents by initiating Reexaminations or Reviews.
