Class of 2008
Vice President of Legal Affairs at AcuFocus,
Where do you see the practice area today and where do you see it in the future?
IP forms a critical component of successful companies. In the world of mergers and acquisitions, a solid IP portfolio can add tremendous value to a company. Because it is so important, attorneys practicing in this area receive attention from the highest management levels in companies. I see the role of IP attorneys as being greatly valued and will only become more necessary with new technologies and applications such as social media.
