Englewood, Colo. (PRWEB) July 29, 2009
Cool Patent, P.C., a boutique patent law firm, has launched a website stressing its strengths in representing technology companies and startups by going beyond patent application filing to provide strategies for maximizing returns on intellectual property. The firm's website coolpatent.com features its "Patents Are Cool(SM)" brand and underscores symbiosis between the electrical and biotech domains via its stylized logo depicting a DNA helix inside a transistor symbol.
Patent Attorney Kenneth J. Cool, president of the firm, possesses a combination of technical degrees that allows him to bridge the gap between the electrical and biotech worlds. Cool holds degrees in Electrical Engineering and Biotechnology in addition to a law degree. Prior to founding Cool Patent, P.C., he served as in-house patent counsel at Gateway, Inc. and Intel Corporation where he served as chairman and member of two technology focused IP committees.
A distinguishing feature offered by Cool Patent, P.C. is the firm's commitment to treat patent strategy as an integral business process, as compared to merely filing patent applications in a vacuum. "Our knowledge of patent law has been built over the years as in-house IP counsel within major corporations and in servicing large public corporations while in private practice. Our clients benefit from this background within a small firm committed to sophisticated patent strategies."
Cool notes that all Cool Patent, P.C. lawyers are registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The firm boasts two experienced Of Counsel patent attorneys, both based in Portland, Ore. Jennifer T. Lin served as in-house counsel for a Portland start-up company following practice with boutique IP law firms and internships at Intel and InFocus. In addition to her law degree, Lin holds bachelor's and master's degrees in engineering disciplines earned from MIT. Joseph Curtin brings a decade of experience as an electrical engineer in addition to in-house counsel experience with a deep understanding of semiconductor, communications, medical instrumentation, MEMS (Micro Electromechanical Systems) and mechanical technologies. He holds a law degree and a degree in Electrical Engineering.
