Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Expert, and his company Expert's Firm (VA), are a virtual, multi-national company primarily engaged in consulting on, and execution of, intellectual property licensing programs. As Certified Management Consultants, their primary market thrust has been toward licensing and commercialization since 1991. They also provide the same zeal and experience to the strategic planning and general management consulting projects they undertake for clients in a variety of industries.

Current and past Expert's Firm clients include Chevron, UNOCAL, the U.S. Departments of Commerce, Energy and Justice, other major U.S. Federal laboratory entities, the Texas Manufacturing Assistance Center, and the Small Business Development Center of the University of Houston (UH). Expert's Firm also works with individual inventors and conducts litigation support for attorneys on patent infringement or other cases. Expert's Firm has consulted for as many as 50 to 100 inventors and entrepreneurs each year. The extent of Expert's Firm's work for a client can vary. It can be as complex as their long-term contract with UNOCAL, in which VA managed UNOCAL's entire portfolio of 40 to 50 out-licensable technologies and executed the program with limited legal and technical support. It could also be as simple as advising an individual inventor how to commercialize his/her invention with the inventor doing most of the execution or acting as a sounding board for the inventor. They also perform strategic planning or general management consulting tasks depending on the needs of the client.
