Business, Intellectual Property*
Hi my name is Tom Dunlap. I have stood in my client’s shoes. I am a lawyer, but I am also an entrepreneur and I have started businesses that have been both wildly successful and spectacularly mundane. My practice, therefore, focuses on intellectual property and business.
I have learned how to listen to clients and how to teach and collaborate with clients, rather than merely instruct and perform.
I helped found and start a video game company that debuted on Oprah and … failed. Then, the following year, I picked it up and started a biotech company that has received millions of dollars in private capital, government grants and private grants that will help change the way medicine and personal health care diagnostics are delivered (see www.ceresnano.com).
I share my practical experience in business and my MBA through the lens of a legal professional with more than 17 years as a practicing attorney.
If business and success are game boards, then law is the box top, where the rules have been written.
I quit law for a time and enlisted in the US Army infantry, then attended OCS and became a light cavalry scout platoon leader in the 1-158th RECON (and other positions). I have an MBA, MS in biotechnology, an instrument pilots license, rescue diver’s certification and a now expired tank driver’s license. I took the silver medal in the full contact national Burmese kickboxing championship in 2002. Presently I run a couple of marathons and/ or triathlons each year all over the place.
