Mr. Kirk Damman, J.D. a patent attorney at Lewis Rice will shed insight and helpful information for our members to use in protecting Intellectual Property both in the United States and Internationally. The general process of preparing for invention disclosure, identifying a skilled attorney for one's particular technology and interfacing with that attorney will be discussed. Questions will be answered as time permits. Earn 1 PDH for this program.

Damman, J.D.:practices in all areas of intellectual property law with an emphasis on helping startup and growing companies begin to manage, license, and gain value from their intellectual property (patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets) and obtain protection for their most important ideas and products. Licensed to practice in front of the United States Patent and Trademark Office for more than 10 years, Mr. Damman has co-authored two books on patent law and serves as the director of the United States Patent Practice (Patent Agency) degree program at Webster University.
