Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 3, 2006

A prominent Century City-based law firm announced its name change from Rein Evans & Sestanovich LLP to Moldo Davidson Fraioli Seror & Sestanovich LLP, or MDFS Law, in order to reflect the firm’s growth and the addition of equity partners.

Davidson. “MDFS Law will continue to serve the legal needs of the business community by providing excellent counsel in the areas of commercial and business litigation; real estate and other transactional matters; bankruptcy and receivership.”

This name change also reflects the departure of founding attorney Scott J. Rein to become the president of Salus Surgical Group, LLC, who, in conjunction with MDFS Law partner Thomas R. Sestanovich, and other attorneys at the firm, are developing the newly re-opened and state-of-the-art Century City Doctors Hospital, and other surgical/medical facilities.

The firm also recently added two new “of counsel” attorneys.

His experience includes a wide range of real estate and business matters, including the negotiation and preparation of exclusive negotiation agreements; owner participation/disposition and development agreements; ground leases and environmental agreements.

Ned M. Gelhaar’s practice focuses on civil litigation with an emphasis on competitive business, intellectual property and insurance coverage matters. In addition, Mr. Gelhaar counsels clients in the engineering, securities, sales and legal fields concerning issues that arise when employees depart to start or join competing firms.

MDFS Law now consists of eight partners and 17 other of counsel and associate attorneys. Its areas of practice include commercial and business litigation, real estate, bankruptcy and receivership, intellectual property, corporate, business and employment law.

New Wupzey! High Chair Food Catcher/ABC Kids Expo

New Wupzey! High Chair Food Catcher/ABC Kids Expo

Huntington Beach, CA (PRWEB) August 1, 2007

As long as infants have been learning to eat in high chairs, they have been making a mess with their food. Until recently, parents around the world have had to pay the price by bending down and cleaning the floor after every meal. A new baby highchair invention solves this burdensome problem, saving parents time and energy.

“I was just so tired of cleaning the floor, three times a day for months and months,” says Johanna Romaniuk, a Southern California mom. “I had looked for products to help, but all I found was the floor mat, which just seemed to create more work. That’s how I came up with the idea of the Wupzey, highchair food catcher. It’s simple to attach and detach, easy to clean, dries quickly and I don’t have to store it away anywhere. Best of all, it kept my hands clean.”

Wupzey is a lightweight, compact, durable and waterproof attachment that goes directly onto the baby’s highchair. It catches the food that falls down the front of the child, as well as catching cups, utensils, bowls, etc. One of the keys of the Wupzey is its rapidly drying, “rip stop nylon” material. This lightweight material can be cleaned anywhere, including the sink or washing machine.

Most parents turn to floor coverings such as mats to protect the floor, but soon realize that mats are too large to clean in the sink and require time and space to dry. Oftentimes, parents still have to get down on their hands and knees to clean, which is the same amount of work as if the baby had dropped food directly onto the floor. Additionally, after every meal the products have to be folded up and stored away. Then they are taken out again and the process is repeated for the next meal.

Wupzey high chair food catcher is a helpful product, which keeps floors clean, but most importantly, saves parents time and energy. It is available in both, a re-usable and disposable version. The re-usable Wupzey comes in a wide variety of colors and designs to match any highchair. The disposable Wupzey is available in white and designed for parents on the go. The Wupzey is U.S. Patent Pending and Intellectual Property insured.

Look for us at booth #2004 at the ABC Kids Expo September 7th-10th in Las Vegas, Nevada USA, where we will be displaying the Wupzey, high chair food catcher in both reusable and disposable.

We look forward to working with you and having a prosperous year.

PatentCafe Wins License with Patent Infringement Insurance Company Leader

PatentCafe Wins License with Patent Infringement Insurance Company Leader

Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) September 23, 2008

PatentCafe, the world leader in artificial intelligence based patent research and portfolio management solutions, today announced that Louisville, Kentucky based Intellectual Property Insurance Services Corporation (IPISC) has selected its ProSearch™ patent search engine for patent insurance underwriting due diligence.

PatentCafe introduced the first successful Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) patent search engine, and after five years remains the only provider of patent search and management solutions based on an artificial intelligence. LSA finds important patents that older keyword search engines miss – even if the most closely related patents don’t contain the keywords used in the search query.

IPISC’s 20-year success record in evaluating patents for offensive and defensive insurance underwriting is unmatched. During the underwriting process, IPISC’s patent and legal analysts assess the potential for a lawsuit. Its proprietary due diligence methods use a variety of proven quality metrics to analyze patents for infringement risk.

Patent portfolio custodians are continually challenged to protect or increase the value of corporate patent assets through better strategic knowledge, and to mitigate financial risks associated with potential infringement litigation.

IPISC’s Insurance products, coupled with more intelligent patent research tools, help companies mitigate risk, and empower patent owners to assertively protect their market positions with less concern about “staying in the game” throughout the long litigation process. IPISC will use PatentCafe’s LSA research solutions for more thorough patent due diligence prior to underwriting new infringement policies.

IPISC President & CEO, Robert Fletcher, says: “PatentCafe’s artificial intelligence based solutions give IPISC a dimension of patent validity and infringement analysis not available with any other keyword-based patent search tools. PatentCafe is now our cornerstone patent research tool to support our underwriting process.”

Fletcher, pioneer of today’s IP insurance industry, wrote the first-ever policy for IP Infringement Abatement more than 20 years ago. His company provides abatement insurance that increases the litigation war chest when a patent owner must sue for infringement, and defense insurance that provides funds to defend against an infringement suit brought by an adversarial patent owner.

PatentCafe’s CEO, Andy Gibbs, says: “With infringement litigation trends going only one way, we’re relentless in developing increasingly intelligent patent research solutions to deliver better patent knowledge. IPISC’s incorporation of our tools for assessing Fortune 500 company patent assets for multi-million dollar patent insurance policies, acknowledges the veracity of our artificial intelligence solutions.”

The largest infringement award in 2007 ($ 1.5 billion; Alcatel-Lucent v. Microsoft) was over a $ 1 billion more than the 2006 record ($ 307 million; Rambus v. Hynix Semiconductor). More importantly, Patent Troll Tracker blogger Rick Frenkel reported a 31.5% increase in the number of defendants sued for patent infringement in 2007 over 2006.

Gibbs adds: “It’s not only smart business, but a fiduciary obligation for CXOs to use the most intelligent research tools and tailored insurance products to help manage corporate patent assets. I believe, quite objectively, that there’s no better product combination for patent asset management than IPISC’s insurance, and PatentCafe’s research tools”.


IPISC, formed in 1990, was the first to offer the Infringement Abatement Insurance policy. Today, it’s the industry’s #1 full service IP risk management firm specializing in IP defense insurance, IP abatement insurance, multi-peril reimbursement insurance, and related services including litigation management and IP intelligence.

IPISC’s founder and CEO, Robert Fletcher, a chemical engineer, patent attorney and business executive, began his IP career as patent counsel for Standard Oil. He then worked for companies such as GE, American Air Filter and Hilliard Lyons.

As the original architects of IP insurance, the company provides insurance policies and services to help identify and reduce IP exposure and expense. IPISC continues to lead the industry in the development of other intellectual property related insurance products and services.


PatentCafe is a global provider of artificial intelligence based patent portfolio management software solutions for international patent data search, strategic portfolio management, work flow, patent competitive intelligence, and statistical patent quality analytics.

The company’s enterprise-level solutions incorporate the intellectual property industry’s most advanced linguistics search technology that helps customers maximize patent quality and licensing revenue optimization, achieve superior patent-based business intelligence, and more efficiently meet corporate governance compliance.

Its solutions are used by the Fortune 500 legal departments, patent portfolio executives, multi-national patent firms, Big 4 consulting firms, technology investors, and risk analysts.
