VLP currently has 32 attorneys, each with outstanding credentials and an average of over 10 years of experience.”



A R T I C L E:

Virtual Law Partners LLP is very pleased to announce an expansion of its Intellectual Property practice with the addition of Jim Markey and Charlie Oh as partners in New York and California.

Mr. Markey joins Virtual Law Partners from Duane Morris, where he served as Chair of the Life Sciences Interdisciplinary Group in New York and represented clients in the pharmaceutical, healthcare, industrial gases and chemicals, and apparel industries. Prior to Duane Morris, he was a partner at Jones Day and Pennie & Edmonds.

"I have practiced IP law at major firms for about 25 years, during which time most IP practices have either merged into mega firms or sought to emulate such firms," said Mr. Markey. "VLP appealed to me as an ideal platform to provide top level services to my clients without the huge overhead of traditional law firms. Particularly in today's economy, businesses are seeking innovative ways to maintain high quality while decreasing expenses."

Dr. Oh joins VLP from the Silicon Valley office of Dechert, where he was a senior attorney in the Patent Counseling Group and represented leading companies in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, clean technology and life sciences industries.

"VLP's talented team of attorneys and its virtual law firm model were a great fit for me and my practice, and I look forward to working with Mr. Markey and the other attorneys in the group," added Dr. Oh.

Mr. Markey's practice is focused on patent and trademark counseling and prosecution. He has extensive experience in reissue applications, including multiple related reissue applications, and reexamination matters and proceedings, including merged reexaminations. Mr. Markey's background also includes over a decade of intellectual property litigation and trial experience in a variety of technical fields.

Prior to practicing law, Mr. Markey worked as a design engineer for a heat transfer equipment manufacturer in the chemical process and energy industries. Admitted to practice in New York and Florida and registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Mr. Markey is a graduate of St. John's University School of Law and a graduate of Manhattan College with a B.E. in Chemical Engineering.

Dr. Oh's practice encompasses all aspects of patent counseling, including developing and procuring worldwide patent portfolios covering developmental and commercial products; providing assessments and opinions on patentability, freedom-to-operate, non-infringement and validity; evaluating intellectual property portfolios in connection with financings and industry collaborations; and mining patent portfolios for opportunities to maximize portfolio value. He specializes in strategic counseling and patent portfolio management in technology areas such as biologics (e.g., antibodies and peptide drugs), enzymes, drug discovery, drug formulations, vaccines, nutraceuticals, and diagnostics.

Prior to his legal career, Dr. Oh was a post-doctoral fellow at U.C. Berkeley, the California Institute of Technology, and U.C. San Francisco, where he carried out inter-disciplinary research covering the fields of neurobiology, genetics, molecular biology and biochemistry. Admitted to practice in California and registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Dr. Oh is a graduate of U.C. Hastings College of Law. He received a B.S. in Biochemistry from U.C. Los Angeles and a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the Johns Hopkins University.

"We are truly excited to have Jim and Charlie join our growing Intellectual Property practice," stated Practice Leader David Roise. "Jim brings us an extremely broad and deep expertise in all areas of IP law, and, in particular, in post-issuance patent proceedings. This is an area of practice that is of major importance to many of our clients and complements our already outstanding group of patent prosecutors. Charlie has years of experience in the basic life sciences prior to beginning his law career. He bolsters our already strong life sciences practice and will provide exceptional patent counseling services for our clients in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and life sciences industries."

Gold Strike! Mining L-and-D Data

Author: KnowledgeAdvisors
Dateline: Chicago, Illinois (CHICAGO, Ill.)  | Tue, 07 Sep 2010

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “CHICAGO, Ill. -- KnowledgeAdvisors, the world's largest provider of learning and talent measurement solutions, today announced it has released a brand new research report investigating the current state of talent management analytics and determining how and to what extent organizations are mining their data to extract value.”



A R T I C L E:

KnowledgeAdvisors, the world's largest provider of learning and talent measurement solutions, today announced it has released a brand new research report investigating the current state of talent management analytics and determining how and to what extent organizations are mining their data to extract value. The paper supplements the increasing desire among business leaders to measure the effects of learning and the steadily developing technology required to scale the measurement process.

This research focuses on a structured approach for extracting value from learning data and is derived from three sources of information: standard reports, dashboards and advanced analytics. Furthermore, the paper draws upon the results of their industry survey. The research conducted by KnowledgeAdvisors' Metrics that Matter(R) system was based upon substantial data collected across diverse industries in an effort to gain a comprehensive representation. As a result, readers will have their principal queries resolved in terms of what is being done to extract value from learning data as well. Valuable recommendations are offered pertaining to actions organizations can implement to ensure training is supporting business goals. These include but are not limited to measurement missions, value demonstration, tools and systems, personnel resources, financial resources and processes for extracting data.

The findings revealed that there appears to be a large disconnect between what organizations should do to extract value from their learning data and what they are actually doing. Merely 50% of respondents reveal that their organizations possess a measurement strategy. Moreover the top two goals of an L&D measurement group are to resolve areas of improvement and effectiveness issues. Plus 86.5% of respondents mentioned that there are less than five people designated to the measurement role for their entire corporations. Finally, funding is restricted to less than 1% of the L&D Budget for 55% of respondents.

In terms of recommendations, organizations should review the following guidelines in analyzing the results and using the data to drive decision-making. First, a clear measurement strategy with a short and long-term roadmap and gain support from stakeholders should be set. Second, financial resources should be acquired to buy capable systems and hire expert measurement personnel. Third, a focus should be built on creating information by optimizing the way data is analyzed and reported.

"The ability to extract information from multiple datasets to help leaders make decisions is the very essence of business intelligence. Without a strategy, resources or funding, corporations are not absorbing the full value from their learning evaluation data based on the results," stated Kent Barnett, CEO of KnowledgeAdvisors.

Organizations interested in further details about this research can access the complimentary white paper found at: http://www.knowledgeadvisors.com/media-research/white-papers/research-paper-extracting-value-from-learning-data-2010/ .

A R T I C L E:

The Missouri Alliance for the Development of Entrepreneurship held the final level of the Inaugural 2010 MADE In Missouri State Entrepreneurship Competition on August 19th, 2010 in the Lowell Mohler Assembly Hall at the Missouri State Fair. Five winners from ten finalists were named, and each received a cash price and certificate for placing, with over 100 in attendance.

In the Open Category, First Place went to K-9 Achievement Center of Centertown, a revolutionary dog-training and police-dog facility. Madhatterr Games Presents... of Lamar, a company specializing in online, supernatural-fantasy gaming, took Second. Kaitlynn's, a restaurant specializing in cheesecake and dessert in Brunswick, won Third Place.

In the Youth Category, two projects made it to the State Level. First place went to Holdems Company, owned by KD and Becca Burkhart of Keytesville. Holdems offers wire-based products like tomato cages and sports equipment. Second place went to Nick's Glycerin Soaps of Blue Springs, an allergy-free soap company run by Nickolaus Dungy.

The MADE In Missouri State Entrepreneurship Competition is an economic development project that provides new and potential business owners in Missouri an opportunity to put their business ideas up against others throughout the state. The State Level was the last of three phases in the competition. Businesses competed using a business plan and a 20-minute presentation to judges consisting of business professionals and technical assistance specialists. The competition also included a trade show-open free to the public-which highlighted finalists' wares and accomplishments. Winners were announced at the Awards Ceremony that afternoon with Senator James Mathewson as Master of Ceremonies.

"I'm pretty speechless," says Alena, the business manager for K-9 Achievement. "We are overwhelmingly grateful. We [she and her husband Michael] have been dreaming of being in business together since high school, and that dream never went away. Winning this competition is a blessing for us. We're very excited!"

First, Second, and Third Place cash prizes in both categories were $2500, $1500, and $1000, respectively. All participants, regardless of placement, are also provided continuing support from technical assistance professionals beyond the competition.

As the new businesses prepare for their next phases, MADE Allies are now looking toward next year. "It has been wonderful seeing how these businesses have benefited through this process," says Cheryl Zimny, Project Manager for MADE. "We anticipate an even larger number next year." As she makes notes on evaluation documents, she adds, "We already have a school that is encouraging all their students to participate next year!" Drafts for Preliminary Level Criteria in the 2011 Competition are currently available at the agency Web site.

For 3rd Year Running, LTC Financial Partners (LTCFP) Makes Inc. Magazine ‘5000 Fastest-Growing’ List

Author: LTC Financial Partners LLC
Dateline: Kirkland, Washington (KIRKLAND, Wash.)  | Thu, 26 Aug 2010

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “KIRKLAND, Wash. -- LTC Financial Partners LLC (LTCFP) continues to expand rapidly in spite of a sluggish economy. This month Inc. Magazine ranks LTCFP No. 2,366 among all companies, and No. 29 among companies in the insurance industry, in its annual ranking of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the nation.”



A R T I C L E:

LTC Financial Partners LLC (LTCFP) continues to expand rapidly in spite of a sluggish economy. This month Inc. Magazine ranks LTCFP No. 2,366 among all companies, and No. 29 among companies in the insurance industry, in its annual ranking of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the nation. LTCFP made the Inc. 5000 list in 2008 and 2009 as well. Among companies in the insurance category, LTCFP is the fastest-growing one focusing exclusively on long term care insurance sales.

Inc. Magazine bases its award on LTCFP's revenue growth of 106% between 2006 and 2009. Revenues rose from $12.5 to $25.7 million for the three-year period.

What's behind the continued rapid growth? A key factor is knowledgeable, objective service to consumers, according to Cameron Truesdell, CEO. Unlike the insurance-agent stereotype, "Our specialists don't push policies, they answer questions," Truesdell says.

"Long term care insurance isn't for everyone," he explains. "People of limited means may be better off relying on Medicaid; and for those who don't qualify for insurance, a reverse mortgage may be a good way to pay for care. Our specialists guide people to the right choice for them, which may or may not be a long term care policy."

Within the long term care industry, LTCFP ranks high in expertise, impartiality and helpfulness, Truesdell asserts. "Word has gotten around that our people can be trusted and know what they're talking about."

LTCFP's impartiality extends even further. "When a policy is the best option, our agents offer additional choice," says Truesdell. "We don't propose one policy from just one carrier. We represent several leading carriers. We help people find the best policy at the lowest cost from the carrier that's right for their situation."

Information on LTCFP and its ranking is available on the Inc. Magazine site, at: http://www.inc.com/inc5000/profile/ltc-financial-partners . LTCFP agents, covering all states, may be located at http://www.ltcfp.com .

Titan Lenders Corp Receives Women’s Business Enterprise National Certification

Author: Titan Lenders Corp
Dateline: Denver, Colorado (DENVER, Colo.)  | Mon, 23 Aug 2010

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “DENVER, Colo. -- Mortgage lending fulfillment outsource services expert Titan Lenders Corp, has received its national certification as a Women's Business Enterprise by the Women's Business Enterprise Council - West Certification Committee, a regional certifying partner of the Women's Business Enterprise National Council.”



A R T I C L E:

Mortgage lending fulfillment outsource services expert Titan Lenders Corp (TLC), has received its national certification as a Women's Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Women's Business Enterprise Council - West Certification Committee, a regional certifying partner of the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

WBENC's national standard of certification implemented by the Western Certification Committee is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and a site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women.

"Titan Lenders Corp pursued its WBE national certification with the purpose of competing for Federal, state and municipality-issued RFPs related to the mortgage fulfillment, post-closing and loan review services that are our specialty," said Titan Lenders Corp founder and president Mary Kladde. "As a WBE certified business, TLC is even more solidly positioned to have a positive impact on the restoration of stability and confidence in the mortgage lending industry."

According to the WBENC, by including women-owned businesses among their vendors, corporations, and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier/vendor diversity programs.

Selected earlier this year to provide a coordinated loan review process for the Massachusetts Housing Finance Agency (MassHousing), Titan Lenders Corp has already demonstrated its competence in delivering risk-lowering services for entities that sell or purchase mortgage loans. Its patented, proprietary web-based software Cerberyx (CBX) supports a full suite of fulfillment services, including: funding, compliance, closing, post-closing, purchase review for correspondents and warehouse lenders, trailing documents, MERs management, FHA insuring, and document management (imaging).

CBX's flexible rules-based architecture allows TLC clients to define field level decision trees, priorities, checklists and process management specific to an investor product variance or a cross-investor climate. TLC is a preferred provider for some of the nation's largest mortgage bankers and warehouse lenders.

About Titan Lenders Corp:

Titan Lenders Corp (www.TitanLendersCorp.com) is one of a specialized few providers of mortgage back office fulfillment services, a not-well-understood facet of mortgage lending that includes closing, funding, and post closing services. Community banks, credit unions, mortgage bankers and brokers, and warehouse line lenders use outsource providers strategically to minimize compliance risks in a time-sensitive error-averse environment. Fluctuations in mortgage lending volume also lead some mortgage lenders to outsource their entire back office operation and secure predictable "per transaction" pricing rather than maintaining an inflexible static in house staff. Titan Lenders Corp is a national certified Women's Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Women's Business Enterprise Council - West Certification Committee, a regional certifying partner of the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

About WBENC:

The Women's Business Enterprise National Council is the nation's largest third party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women in the United States. WBENC is a resource for the more than 700 US companies and government agencies that rely on WBENC's certification as an integral part of their supplier diversity programs.

Shipping Batteries, Paints, or Other Hazmats? Lion Technology Teaches Rules for Shipping Hazmats by Ground, Air, or Ocean

Author: Lion Technology Inc
Dateline: Las Vegas, Nevada (LAS VEGAS, Nev.)  | Tue, 17 Aug 2010

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- The Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Transportation have stepped up enforcement to reduce undeclared and illegal hazmat shipments via airline, truck, rail, and ship. Undeclared shipments of hazardous materials are predominately aerosols and flammable liquids, as well as batteries, fireworks, dry ice, perfume products, and cigarette lighters.”



A R T I C L E:

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Transportation (DOT) have stepped up enforcement to reduce undeclared and illegal hazmat shipments via airline, truck, rail, and ship. Undeclared shipments of hazardous materials are predominately aerosols and flammable liquids (e.g., paint and paint-related materials), as well as batteries, fireworks, dry ice, perfume products, and cigarette lighters.

Before a hazardous material is transported in commerce, it must be properly classified, described, packaged, marked, and labeled as prescribed by the DOT Hazardous Materials Regulations (49 CFR). The DOT also mandates that all hazmat employees who "directly affect the safety of hazardous materials transportation" be trained and tested on these same regulations. Hazmat employees must have additional training on the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations and IMDG Code if shipping by air or ocean.

To help the regulated community understand the rules for multimodal hazmat shipping, Lion Technology, the nation's leader in regulatory compliance training, is presenting a how-to training series on the DOT, IATA, and IMDG regulations. Training on all three shipping modes will be held in San Diego, CA on September 27-30; Seattle, WA on September 28-October 1; and San Francisco, CA on October 4-7. Training on the DOT and IATA rules will be held in Denver, CO on October 13-15. Training on the DOT rules (ground only) will be held in Phoenix, AZ on October 18-19 and Las Vegas, NV on October 21-22, 2010.

The fee for the two-day DOT workshop is $695 per person. Each additional day (IATA or IMDG) is $495 per person. Group pricing is available. Registration includes course reference materials, networking luncheon, certificate of achievement, and one year of follow-up support. Registration starts at 7:30 a.m., and the workshop runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Pre-registration is highly recommended. To register, call (888) 546-6511 or visit us online at www.Lion.com/HazmatShippers .

The workshops feature in-depth discussions of the DOT Hazardous Materials Regulations (49 CFR) and the IATA and IMDG Dangerous Goods Regulations, with an emphasis on the differences between the regulations and the critical components of hazmat shipping, including classification, shipping papers, package selection, package marking and labeling, and record keeping.
