A new article by Martin B. Robins, Esq., published in February of 2015 in the Illinois Bar Journal, discusses how attorneys can best advise their clients when they want to protect their innovations.  Entitled, “Patent, Trade Secret, or Both:  A General Practitioner’s Guide,” the article explains that whether or not a client facing intellectual property issues should apply for a U.S. patent, opt for trade secret protection, or both, depends on a number of different factors.  In addition, Mr. Robins offers pointers for implementing patent and trade secret protection once a decision about the best approach has been reached.  To read the full article, click here.

ADR Systems, It’s Settled.™

Over the years, I have worked with many mediators and settled many class actions.   A case I brought to ADR Systems proved to be the most difficult.  Through great efforts, Judge McGann guided us to a deal.  I do not believe any other mediator I’ve worked with could have settled this case.  Judge McGann is a joy to work with, and at the top of my list.
