PB&L Boise Attorney Named President of the Idaho Chapter of the Federal Bar Association
September 28, 2018

Dana M. Herberholz, shareholder, patent attorney and litigator at Parsons Behle & Latimer, will take the helm as president of the Idaho Chapter of the Federal Bar Association (FBA) beginning Oct. 1, 2018, for the 2018/2019 year. Founded in 1920, the FBA is a professional organization for attorneys and the judiciary who practice in the federal system or have an interest in federal law.

Herberholz, selected as president-elect of the FBA’s Idaho chapter last year, says, “I am excited to take over as president of the Idaho chapter of the Federal Bar Association. I look forward to helping the chapter continue to increase membership, engage members and serve the needs of the bench and Bar in the District of Idaho.” Herberholz has served on the Idaho chapter’s executive committee for the past several years.

A key strength of the Idaho chapter, he says, is its policy of continued collegiality. One example is the tri-state conference in which the Idaho chapter annually participates with the Utah and Wyoming FBA chapters. The Idaho chapter will host the conference during 2019 in Sun Valley.  

Herberholz says the size of the chapter provides atypical benefits to its members as well. “Our chapter is smaller than other FBA chapters across the country, which provides greater opportunities for us to interact with members of bench. That type of access is unique,” he says.

Herberholz’s practice focuses on intellectual property litigation, with particular emphasis on patent litigation, and spans diverse technology areas including consumer electronics and hardware, computer software, image processing, wireless communication devices, laboratory equipment, medical devices and internet technologies. He maintains a national practice and represents companies in patent disputes in various courts across the United States.
