Colleagues:

It is with mixed emotions that I announce the retirement of Maria Rubinshteyn, Director of Business Contracts and Brand Protection. Maria started working at Berkeley 40 years ago, and, over the course of her career, has played an integral role in defining and defending the intellectual property of the University. While we wish her a long and happy retirement, Maria’s leadership and collaborative attitude will be missed by all of us who had the opportunity to work alongside of her.
