Pursuit of the Patent: Positioning Research for Protection and Impact

Wed, 02/27/2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Lunch and discussion with IP Attorney Edmund Pfleger and TLA Licensing Manager Bob Sleeper 

It’s great to have a patent with your name on it. Successfully protecting your invention with a patent can be challenging, but early planning and positioning of your research can smooth the process. Understanding some simple tips and tricks can help you properly protect your devices, materials and software methods. 

Join us for lunch and a discussion with Edmund Pfleger, founding partner of GTPP and managing partner in the firm’s Tucson, Arizona offices. Ed specializes in U.S. and foreign intellectual property protection, licensing and enforcement, and has extensive technical experience in semiconductor processes and devices; analog, digital and mixed signal devices and systems; opto-electronics; mass storage and data backup; computer hardware and software; power converters and power inverters; and medical devices and systems. 

Bob Sleeper will introduce Ed and offer a brief overview of services TLA provides to help you bring your inventions from the lab to the world for maximum impact. 

Who should attend? 

This talk will be geared toward faculty, researchers, staff and graduate students. Lunch will be provided for those who register in advance.

We look forward to seeing you there.
