TALA provides Texas artists and arts organizations with legal and accounting assistance to enable them to maximize their potential, shape our cultural landscape, and contribute to the creative economy.
Inventors may now apply for TALA’s Patent Pro Bono program through the US Patent and Trademark Office National Clearinghouse for patent pro bono assistance.
TALA provides individualized volunteer legal and accounting services to financially qualified artists and arts nonprofits, hosts educational seminars and clinics, and produces educational materials to increase business knowledge in the arts.
New at TALA! Through a partnership with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), TALA's Patent Pro Bono program is designed to assist financially under-resourced independent inventors in Texas and Louisiana. With the goal of advancing invention based economic development, the program matches patent attorneys and agents with inventors to assist in filing for patents with the USPTO.
