The Flash knows that founders place top priority on protecting their most valuable assets – their intellectual property – and we appreciate the importance of a good strategy for safeguarding patents, trademarks and other IP. So we’re really proud to see Goodwin Procter named “IP Group of the Year” by law publication Law360. This is the second straight year Goodwin has earned this top distinction, and for good reason: the Goodwin IP team tallied two U.S. Supreme Court victories on cases related to patents and trademarks and prompted the Federal Circuit to rewrite precedent last year. The Flash offers a proud tip of the hat to the Goodwin IP group. Congrats!
The Flash also checks in with one of the hottest unicorns on the startup scene – Zenefits – and the recent C-level shakeup that saw co-founder Conrad Parker replaced as CEO.
