New Book Helps Tech Startups Maximize Intellectual Property Value
Volpe and Koenig, P.C. Shareholders and Colleagues Explore Funding and IP Strategies Across Company Development Stages
PHILADELPHIA, PA (January 26, 2017) – Volpe and Koenig, P.C., an intellectual property law firm with offices in Philadelphia, PA, and Princeton, NJ, today announced the publication of a new book written to help technology startup companies leverage intellectual property assets to economic advantage over the course of their business life cycles. Intellectual Property and Financing Strategies for Technology Startups, by Gerald (Jay) B. Halt Jr., John C. Donch Jr., Amber R. Stiles and Robert Fesnak, explores a wide range of startup funding sources while offering practical strategies and advice for maximizing the value of intellectual property rights across successive company development stages.
The book’s authors have decades of collective experience as counsel and consultants to business owners and entrepreneurs. Halt is the President and CEO of Volpe and Koenig, P.C., and Donch is a shareholder at the firm. Both intellectual property law specialists are regularly recognized on high profile annual lists of exemplary attorneys in the field. Stiles is a patent examiner who has worked extensively with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), and Fesnak is a partner and management consulting leader for the Pennsylvania/New Jersey region at RSM US LLP, a national certified public accounting firm.
Commented Halt, “Each of us has been on the technology front lines and knows the challenges, opportunities and limitations facing those who are launching, building and expanding businesses in this arena. We saw the need for a comprehensive guide using real world examples and strategies that fit each unique stage of development, and we wanted owners and entrepreneurs to understand how IP can be used strategically to attract funding and advance business goals every step of the way.”
The book is published by Springer International Publishing and is the third in a series that includes Intellectual Property in Consumer Electronics, Software and Technology Startups and Intellectual Property in the Food Technology Industry.
