Taylor Porter will serve as a sponsor of the 5th Annual Inventorship Showcase at LSU, to be held Tuesday, April 23, at the Lod Cook Alumni Center, at 5:30 p.m. The event serves as a recognition of innovative LSU faculty, staff and students, patents issued and other achievements in technology transfer at LSU.
Technology transfer offices at LSU campuses advance innovation by serving the faculty, supporting the research enterprise, and partnering with entrepreneurs and businesses to commercialize inventions that enhance the economy and benefit the public. This event will showcase LSU technologies and innovations including faculty, staff, and students who have been awarded patents throughout the 2018 fiscal year, 2018 National Academy of Inventors Fellows, and other achievements in technology transfer.
Taylor Porter's Patent and Technology Transfer practice includes complete patent prosecution and strategic counseling services, including the prosecuting and licensing of patent applications and patents for corporate and state clients, including Louisiana State University; prosecuting and defending patent infringement cases; and aiding in the compliance with state and federal regulations. Our admittance before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) gives our attorneys valuable perspective on patent and trademark issues. Our Firm has prepared and prosecuted hundreds of patent applications on behalf of university clients in a wide range of technologies. Our attorneys have extensive technical background knowledge regarding the various scientific fields and wide array of disciplines from which these patented technologies are created, enabling our attorneys to fully interact with the inventors, engineers, scientists, and product designers, and provide a quick turnaround to the patent process. Our attorneys further have experience working with both university inventors and technology managers to identify patentable aspects contained within university research, and to turn this research into a profitable asset. We also counsel our university clients on strategies to maximize the value of their properties through licensing, particularly through drafting and negotiating licensing agreements.
