Todd Sullivan Interviewed in Technology Transfer Publication

RALEIGH, N.C.-Womble Carlyle attorney Todd Sullivan is quoted in an article in the August 2009 issue of Technology Transfer Tactics, a monthly newsletter for technology transfer professionals.

The article focuses on intellectual property disputes between research universities and inventors, and how proactive measures can prevent such disputes from becoming major headaches. The article was prompted in large part by a recent court battle between the Mayo Clinic and former employee Dr. Peter Elkin, who developed a software program for bioinformatics. The two sides now are battle over who controls the rights and revenues from the software.

Sullivan is quoted extensively on how companies and inventors can prevent such disputes. "Disputes essentially arise like a phoenix from the ashes of poorly drafted agreements," Sullivan tells Technology Transfer Tactics.

Todd Sullivan is a trade secrets litigation attorney in Womble Carlyle's Raleigh office. He is a co-author of the Womble Carlyle Trade Secrets Blog.
