HOUSTON, Dec. 20, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Houston intellectual property attorney Dave Healey, a principal with Fish & Richardson, recently launched the blog Patent Math to offer news and insights for protecting and capitalizing on IP assets in business.
Through Patent Math (http://patentmath.com/), Healey offers his unique perspective on both domestic U.S. and foreign IP opportunities and landmines, and offers practical solutions to protect and exploit IP assets. Healey's entries are based on more than 25 years of experience with complex patent litigation and related antitrust and tort claims.
The blog also includes useful documents and links, and has featured guest posts from authors in Germany and Mexico. It has become a key destination for executives and decision-makers from Fortune 500 companies, corporate counsel, IP counsel and other lawyers looking for strategies to integrate patent and business strategies designed to maximize IP value and minimize waste. To date, the blog has attracted readers from across the U.S., as well as Canada, China, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Russia, Taiwan and the U.K.
"Calculating the value of an IP asset is difficult, and it is crucial to understand what steps are necessary to ensure the greatest return," says Healey. "My hope is that Patent Math becomes a place where fellow attorneys and business leaders discuss ideas to get the most out of IP investments and gain insight into the changing patent world."
Healey advises businesses on strategic patent licensing and litigation issues. He represents clients in the technology, semiconductor and software industries in state and federal courts, the International Trade Commission, International Chamber of Commerce, American Arbitration Association, NASD Arbitration Forum and private arbitration. He also assists with the planning and execution of multi-jurisdictional strategies involving courts and administrative agencies in the U.S. and Europe.
