Alliance enables members to develop patents and trademarks to secure long-term market dominance, protect intellectual assets and maximize company value.
Providing Intellectual Property Services to Members
Startup Sandbox has announced a new strategic partnership with the firm of Carr & Ferrell LLP. Based in Menlo Park, Carr & Ferrell specializes in corporate law, intellectual property development, and commercial and intellectual property litigation. The new partnership is focused on strengthening the foundational intellectual property that underlies biotech therapies and products under development at Startup Sandbox.
"Without the ability to develop, protect and execute their ideas and visions for personal medicine and new therapeutics, it would be impossible for young, hungry companies to secure their place in the business community."
Long and Proven Track Record
“Having our residents and members partner with a law firm with the experience and biotechnical intelligence of Carr & Ferrell provides an enormous opportunity to create and strengthen the intellectual property being developed by the companies in Startup Sandbox,” according to Lou Pambianco, CEO of Startup Sandbox. “I have worked with Carr & Ferrell for a number of years and have always found the work, effort and results extraordinarily beneficial."
Securing the Value of Intellectual Property
“The development of strategic intellectual property is paramount to new ventures in the biotech and biomedical space. Without the ability to develop, protect and execute their ideas and visions for personal medicine and new therapeutics, it would be impossible for young, hungry companies to secure their place in the business community,” added Mike Lund, president of Startup Sandbox. “Our alliance with Carr & Ferrell enables our members to develop patents and trademarks that secure their long-term market dominance, to become litigation-proof, prevent valuable assets from being co-opted by former employees and vendors, and increase the value of their companies.”
Protecting Inventors and Innovation
“Working with the inventors and scientists at Startup Sandbox will allow us to continue to be at the cutting edge of the revolution in personalized medicine," said Jeff Capaccio of Carr & Ferrell. "We will have a look at what new medicines and therapies are just over the horizon, and will be able to formulate strategies so that inventors of these breakthroughs can operate freely as they bring their ideas to market”.
