DENVER – Mayor Michael B. Hancock released the following statement celebrating the historic opening of the new U.S. Patent and Trademark Rocky Mountain Regional Office in downtown Denver:
“The opening of this satellite U.S. Patent and Trademark office is a momentous day for Denver, the region and Colorado.
