Business Journals Highlight Expertise of Partners Steve Good and Ken Glaser

06.25.12

The Business Journals featured Gardere Managing Partner Stephen D. Good and Kenneth R. Glaser, chair of Gardere's Intellectual Property Practice Group, in a June 25 article published in the Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio editions titled, "Shifting economy affects commercial litigation." An excerpt can be viewed below.

That federal legislation [Leahy-Smith America Invents Act], co-written by U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith of San Antonio, initiated new laws guiding procedures for resolving disputes in patent validity, as well as speeding up the process of getting a patent and lowering patent fees.

The legal impact of that legislation started last September and will be phased in more this September. Texas attorneys will have to see in late 2012 how much additional impact that legislation has on their already growing IP practices, said Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP Partner Ken Glaser.

Cost-conscious clients continue to be a trend for Texas lawyers, said Steve Good, managing partner with Gardere's office in Dallas. More attention to managing legal costs has led to more Texas companies avoiding bankruptcy filings while their creditors push for privately negotiated work outs of debt repayment as well as "alternative fee arrangements" for the attorneys.

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.
