Excerpt from recent testimonial/reference
"... I write this open recommendation with nothing but positive endorsement for Doug, his performance, and his passion and tenacity.
... His position was ... in a dual capacity. First, as a patent attorney to protect the company’s trademarked names, design patents and utility patents on products. Second, to act as corporate counsel and oversee all legal affairs, including contracts with vendors, customers and service providers as well as building leasing contracts, human resource issues and collection efforts.
Doug developed an in-house legal department from scratch. He set up the necessary docketing and case management tools and hired and trained legal staff to handle all of the company’s intellectual property asset acquisition in-house. He and his staff filed, handled, and obtained hundreds of US and foreign trademarks, patents, and copyrights. Hundreds of general business legal matters were handled, including supplier agreements, handling miscellaneous disputes and compliance issues, and managing outside counsel on various litigations.
Doug did a great job ..., and I wholeheartedly recommend him ..." --- CFO
