Trademark and Patent Attorney

Gunn Lee & Cave

Mr. Guinn is a registered patent attorney specializing in all aspects of intellectual property, with an emphasis
on litigation, primarily patent, trademark and copyright infringement actions. This is great opportunity to learn and ask questions about best practices for protecting your idea, provisional patents, and patent prosecution.

Presentation Overview: The US Patent Office judges ruled earlier this year that the Broad Institutes and UC-Berkeley’s patents do not interfere, effectively allowing both institutions to have patents covering portions of the CRISPR intellectual property landscape. How will this ruling affect the licensing process for using this game-changer technology?
