03/31/2009 - Sirti IP/BizNet Provides Critical Legal Services

Many start-up technology companies have intellectual property that needs legal protection, but may lack the funds necessary to obtain that protection. As part of its "accelerator" services, Sirti put together a team - Sirti's IP/BizNet program - to address the legal services needs of its clients. The team is through a partnership with Gonzaga University School of Law, K&L Gates, Lee & Hayes, Paine Hamblen Coffin Brooke & Miller, Randall & Danskin, and Sadler Breen Morasch & Colby.

The legal services are performed for Sirti clients by Gonzaga University law students with supervision and final review of work by expert attorneys from the local law firms. Services include research and acquisition of intellectual property such as patents, trademarks, and copyrights. Interns develop business contracts and employment agreements. The service is low or no-cost depending upon the company’s revenue and/or investment capital. Sirti facilitates the program and provides fully equipped office space to the law students.

After its first full year, the Sirti IP/BizNet program has enabled 30 clients to receive crucial legal assistance. The 2008 total for invention disclosures and patent applications was 77. The statistics include 11 patent applications, 25 business law cases, 13 trademarks, and 8 incorporations.
