“… expert in complex financing and intellectual property …” – D CEO Magazine
Based on practical experience, Talcott Franklin P.C. counsels clients on creating strategic programs to harvest, manage, and exploit intellectual assets, specifically tailored to each client’s business goals and corporate structure. The Firm does not prosecute patents. The Firm also litigates disputes involving intellectual assets.
Some Firm attorneys have the rare and unparalleled experience of building an intellectual asset development program from scratch at a Fortune 500 company.
Implementing those programs required the companies to change their organizational dynamic from one of giving away intellectual assets to one of recognizing their value, protecting them against loss, and realizing their potential. Building those programs required intensively studying intellectual asset programs at other companies, creating incentive structures, educating researchers and others about intellectual asset protection, drafting and implementing procedures, and developing monetization vehicles. It also required an innovative approach to protect intellectual assets at little or no cost. For example, one of the Firm’s attorney’s innovations – the flying of “tribute planes” to protect the brands of acquired airlines – is now widely imitated across the airline industry.
The Firm also has extensive contacts with leading providers of investment capital to support new technologies and discoveries. Our mortgage-backed securities work has connected the Firm with an unmatched number of capital sources, which are critical to any successful, large-scale monetization of inventions. Our experience in securitization – the creation of investment vehicles tied to a cash flowing asset (such as loans or licensing revenue) – likewise can help us recognize opportunities to generate revenue.
The Firm is fortunate to employ professionals with talents unusual for a law firm. The Firm’s Media Director is an accomplished artist, graphic designer, photographer, and video editor.
Talcott Franklin P.C. was built on innovation, something inventive and imaginative clients can appreciate. The Firm’s creativity can help enhance, protect, and monetize a client’s ingenuity.
