"GONE FISHIN’" Lowell Anderson Retires
After a distinguished legal career, Lowell Anderson has recently retired as a principal from practice with Stetina Brunda Garred & Brucker, PC.
Lowell was chair of the Intellectual Property Section of the State Bar of California (1992-1993) and a past Editor-in-Chief of New Matter (1986-1988). He is also a past president of the Orange County Patent Law Association. Lowell was inducted into Pi Tau Sigma and Sigma Tau Honorary Fraternities, a semifinalist in the Giles Sutherland Rich Moot Court Competition, (1981), a member of the Southwestern Law Review (1979-1980) and managing editor of the Hastings Constitutional Law Quarterly (1981-1982). He is the author of a number of articles which have appeared in New Matter, the Orange County Patent Law Association Newsletter, and the European Intellectual Property Law Reporter. Lowell also wrote several chapters in the CEB book on Trade Secrets in California.
As may be the case for other New Matter readers, I have relied upon Lowell’s case comments since I became an attorney in 2005. I know of no other regular column in existence that condenses all cases of interest to matters concerning Intellectual Property. One can get a sense as to the growth of the field of Intellectual Property law just by reviewing Case Comments. Consider that in Volume 32, from Winter 2007, Case Comments covered five pages in length, while in Volume 44, from Winter 2019, Lowell’s Case Comments had grown to twenty pages!
