Greensfelder’s IP practice, startup involvement featured in St. Louis Business Journal cover story
Greensfelder’s Intellectual Property group and St. Louis Cortex office are featured in the cover story for the March 8, 2019, edition of the St. Louis Business Journal, “Reinventing Patent Law.” The article focuses on the involvement of Greensfelder and other firms with IP practices in the St. Louis startup scene, including at the growing Cortex Innovation Community.
“Like much of the legal industry, patent firms are consolidating but also moving into new business by building relationships with entrepreneurial startups,” the article notes. Greensfelder Intellectual Property group leader Mark Stallion, who also leads the firm’s Cortex group, was interviewed for the article and featured on the cover.
In addition to being a resource for startup businesses, Stallion told the Business Journal, adding startups as clients can lead to engagements with larger corporations that are seeking talent and partnering with startups on developing technology. Stallion formed a team of attorneys in 2018 to staff the firm’s Cortex office. The article also quotes Greensfelder attorney Zack Smith, a member of the Cortex team and Litigation practice group.
