What isn’t e-commerce these days. Any business fogging up a mirror is in e-commerce in some form or fashion. The question isn’t: “Are you in e-commerce?” The question is: “Are you optimizing your e-commerce position?”

And about your e-brand. Has it been cleared? Has it been registered correctly? What about maintenance? Enforcement? Is it safe? You think so? We know ways unnoticeable to the naked eye that competitors can steal customers by pillaging your brand’s identity on the Internet. Today’s technology opens up a prolifery of new ways for competitors to traipse mud across the carpet of your brand’s identity and divert business from your pocket to theirs without you even noticing.

It’s a fast new world, but not always a pretty one.

John Holzgraefe of Jenkens & Gilchrist: “People hire us because we make things happen. Every day we see it. People need to know how to identify and secure the IP assets they are developing. Then they have to manage the financing process. We help solve both problems.”

It’s also no secret, more and more people want to talk IPOs. And while it may sound simple to some, to do it right takes meticulous planning, creative resourcing and intricate execution. Those aren’t just words. They are the results from doing it again and again. Hand-holding start-ups while creating and protecting their IP assets.

For some, it’s mergers and acquisitions. Buying. Selling. Co-branding, Jumping in the same boat together Stock exchanges. Asset evaluation. IP analysis. Trade secrets. Mix the recipe the wrong way and you end up with mush. Let an experienced professional guide you and (he results could be magnificent.

But in the end, it’s about Velocity. Speed plus Direction. Lack either one and you won’t like the results. Achieve both and you’re on the right road.
