Partner Ken Glaser Talks Texas IP with Business Journals

06.25.12

The Business Journals reached out to Kenneth R. Glaser, chair of Gardere's Intellectual Property Practice Group, for an update on the intellectual property climate in Texas. The June 25 article was published in the Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio editions and is titled "Innovation, growth making Texas hub for IP work." An excerpt can be viewed below.

"Patent activity is increasing because companies are spending more money on innovation and competition," said Ken Glaser, a partner in the Dallas office of the Gardere Wynne Sewell law firm. "IP business has increased substantially for us."

Glaser looks at intellectual property legal work in three areas: investing in or licensing business ideas; enforcement or litigation of business ideas; and then the deals or transactions for ownership of business ideas. Legal work in Texas is up for all three of those areas, he said.

"Clients are even thinking about patent litigation more," Glaser said, "but they think about it the way they think about going to the dentist: It's something necessary, but they don't like to do it."

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
