Presenters

Joe Miotke is a patent litigator and licensed patent attorney with intellectual property experience in patent, trademark, copyright, and trade secret matters. As described in the IAM Patent 1000: “Miotke is the gold standard. His understanding of the subject matter is faultless. He is proactive and gives practical advice. Most importantly, he is sensitive to the resources and purse strings of the company. He is very popular." Additionally, a client said," [Miotke} is the best counsel we have ever worked with. He has a comprehensive knowledge of the market, and advocates strategic management and monetization--something many firms have not yet grasped.’”
