Joel R. Samuels — Associate, Harness, Dickey & Pierce, P.L.C.
With nearly a decade of practice, Joel is not only a legal advisor and counselor, but also a facilitator to delivering productive, efficient and streamlined solutions to his clients. Joel’s practice focuses on intellectual property litigation in the areas of patents, trade secrets, trademarks and copyrights. His experience includes all aspects of federal litigation, including conducting discovery, drafting briefs, conducting trial and complying with settlement obligations. Joel also prepares the full array of legal opinions, including clearance, validity and infringement opinions.
Joel is also called upon to negotiate and document a wide variety of agreements, including settlement, license and inventor development arrangements. In addition, he advises on IP related transactions and claims involving complex antitrust issues, as well as advocates his client’s position in trademark oppositions and cancellations before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board and Inter Partes Review proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.
Prior to joining Harness Dickey, Joel worked as an associate in the NYC office of an IP and antitrust firm. During law school, Joel clerked in the in-house legal department of The Coca-Cola Company, where he focused on antitrust compliance and trade secret protection matters.

There are a variety of parking garages, surface lots, and meters on the street near BAMSL’s Bar Center. But, here are our personal recommendations: Lucas Street, just behind our building, accessed from 6th Street, has several meters you can park at for short visits. There is a surface lot at 6th and Lucas, and the St. Louis Centre East garage on the south side of 6th and Washington, plus parking at the Missouri Athletic Club’s (MAC) surface lot is also convenient. Additional parking information and maps are available at parking.bamsl.org.
It is BAMSL's policy to collect payment for events, meetings, and seminars prior to admittance to the event. If payment is not made during registration for the event then you will be required to pay upon check-in at the event. BAMSL may collect an administrative fee for registration cancellations or transfers made within seven (7) days of an event: $10 for one-hour CLE seminars, $25 for half-day CLE seminars and ticketed social and membership events, and $50 for full-day CLE seminars and conferences. Due to the cost of catering, no refunds will be given for pre-ordered meals unless BAMSL received the cancellation request at least seven (7) days prior to the event. All registration change, cancellation, and refund requests should be made in writing.
