15 Apr James Coles authors unique Intellectual Property book
April 15, 2021 — The American Bar Association (ABA) has published a unique book from Densborn Blachly attorney James Coles. The book, “Drafting and Negotiating Intellectual Property Transactions,” provides practical insight into drafting and negotiating transactions with intellectual property provisions.
“I started this book because I could not find one book devoted explicitly to the subject matter I was teaching in the law course I designed,” Coles said. “It is very gratifying that the American Bar Association saw the critical need to have it published for the entire law community.”
Coles has been practicing law for nearly 50 years and has spent the last 15 years teaching “Intellectual Property Transactions & Licensing” at the IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law on the campus of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. The course he designed is unique because its approach is practical instead of case-study based like many law courses. His peer-reviewed book takes the same approach and has already received positive reviews.
“Jim’s vast experience in this field could fill volumes, and we are thrilled he can share this knowledge to educate future generations of attorneys,” said Densborn Blachly Managing Partner David Blachly. “With its unique focus, the book makes a great reference for any lawyer practicing intellectual property law.”
Coles is a leader in advising local, national and international businesses on all types of technology and intellectual property legal issues, including patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret, intellectual property transactions and intellectual property litigation. He has extensive knowledge in drafting and negotiating agreements with intellectual property issues and resolving disputes involving technology and intellectual property matters. He helps clients assess their intellectual property assets through consulting services and develop strategies for protecting and exploiting those assets.
“Drafting and Negotiating Intellectual Property Transactions” is available now on the ABA website at https://www.americanbar.org/products/inv/book/411364913/.
