I am a business and innovation counsel with in-house expertise in assessing business needs to provide legal advice that achieves the desired business outcome. I have a full service law firm, No Other IP, that provides Patent (Utility and Design), Trademark, Copyright, IP Agreement, Contract Negotiations and IP Protection Strategy with a Global Business Outlook. I am a registered patent attorney licensed to practice law in DC, MD, VA and before the United States Supreme Court. No Other IP provides to level the negotiations playing field. Many smaller companies do not have the budget or volume of work to justify hiring in-house patent counsel. We provide “outside” in-house counsel for small to mid-sized companies giving them the same legal advantage and expertise that larger companies can afford, but at a fraction of the cost. Highlights of my experience include: o Innovation Counsel for The Coca-Cola Company o Intellectual Property & Business Transactions Counsel for Rhodia Inc. o CEO of No Other Council, providing strategic business development consulting
