SALT LAKE CITY-
Stoel Rives LLP, a full service, U.S. business law firm, has announced that Kory D. Christensen
, a member of the firm's Technology and Intellectual Property group, has been recognized as a leader in patent law by being selected as an author in the recently released book, Understanding Patent Reform Implication, published by Aspatore Books.
Understanding Patent Reform Implications is an authoritative, insider's perspective on the benefits and drawbacks of proposed U.S. patent reforms. Featuring partners and shareholders from some of the nation's leading law firms, these experts provide descriptions of the current proposed reform legislation and discuss the controversies related to those reforms, including the first-to-file system, inequitable conduct reform, and reforms related to litigation venue and damages. These top lawyers outline the economic impact of proposed reforms, the response from various industry sectors, and the effect of U.S. legislation on the international community and vice-versa. Additionally, these leaders evaluate the likelihood of certain reforms, offer thoughts on how to advise clients on what to expect, and outline potential issues that have not yet been covered by current legislative proposals.
Kory Christensen represents a wide range of technology companies from privately held start-ups to publicly traded corporations. His practice emphasizes strategic counseling on intellectual property matters including intellectual property audits, patent counseling, and patent prosecuting for computer software and hardware technologies and business methods.
