“Working for provided me a unique opportunity to learn about IP, and more specifically patent law. From the beginning, I was involved with several projects that required me to research existing patents, and value them.  Because of the small size of the company, I had many responsibilities, and Dr. Grune allowed me to “get my hands dirty” rather than push papers. The unique environment of a small business required daily interaction with the company’s principals,  forging strong business and personal relationships. Dr. Grune encouraged me to learn as much as possible about IP during the summer, and he  created an environment that was conducive to that end. I have developed a strong knowledge base about prosecuting patents that adds to my skill set and expands my marketability. Since the time I spent with ePM, I went on to attend  law school and have become a successful attorney practicing corporate law for the last 15 years. was a truly valuable choice for me as I decided the path of my law career.”
