Throughout his professional life, Tyler Haston has learned that when important issues or circumstances arise, it is helpful to have an advocate who can offer guidance and direction. He strives to utilize those skills, which he learned and applied every day as a police officer, now as a lawyer, to meet the needs of his intellectual property clients.
Tyler brings his analytical nature to the forefront in helping clients with trademark prosecution and defense, as well as other intellectual property-related matters. A consummate team player, Tyler assists clients with the defense of their intellectual property rights by responding to actions from the United States Patent and Trademark Office and by performing research regarding intellectual property litigation matters.
Before joining Barnes & Thornburg full-time, Tyler served as a summer associate and law clerk at the firm, an extern for the Honorable Loretta H. Rush of the Indiana Supreme Court, and a law clerk for the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) focusing in the areas of intellectual property, trademark and licensing.
Prior to attending law school, Tyler was a police officer for the town of Zionsville, Indiana.
