(openPR) - Innovative and unique program provides Intellectual Property guidance and counseling to new and growing companies

Dallas, Texas, October 27, 2009 – Klemchuk Kubasta LLP (www.kk-llp.com) is pleased to announce the offering of a new service. The Virtual IP Counselsm program, launching
November 1st will provide companies with an experienced intellectual property (IP) lawyer to serve as outside general counsel. Founding Partners Darin M. Klemchuk and Kelly J. Kubasta will direct the program and will enlist the support of the firm’s diverse resources.

“Many technology companies, particularly start ups and pre-first round of financing ventures, require IP law guidance and counseling on how to initially assess IP, acquire it, maximize their IP assets, and leverage those assets to maximize market share,” noted Mr. Klemchuk. “Virtual IP Counselsm works by providing these companies with the experienced IP guidance they need at predictable billing increments – often times at a fraction of the cost of an in-house lawyer.”

Using this unique program, we offer our clients the opportunity to develop a strong foundation that will provide both short-term and long-term benefits, without incurring the significant costs of hiring in-house counsel.”
