Intellectual Property Management and Technology Transfer
The practice has 11 years of IP Management experience.  We are rooted in IP Patent and Licensing having managed the IBM PC Company Patent and Licensing Practice during the Internet Boom.  Kalinoski has 5 patents to his name, but credits his knowledge of successful offensive and defensive patent strategies to the late great Gordon Matthews.  Mr. Matthews, best known as the father of voicemail, was a prolific innovator with over 44 patents in his name.  While his candle may have burned out prematurely - his legacy is alive in the name of commercialization and innovation.
Our technology transfer and commercialization process continues where Mr. Matthews efforts stopped.  We have established business practice integration points that connect inventor ideas to market needs (requirements).
