Hoffmann & Baron, LLP Managing Partner Interviewed On Global Public Affairs Show

Daniel A. Scola, Jr., Managing Partner at Hoffmann & Baron, LLP, was recently a guest on ‘Enterprise Podcast Network’ show. He joined Host Eric Dye to discuss the specific practice of intellectual property (IP) law.

Scola addressed the importance of IP protection for businesses, creative people, entrepreneurs, etc. Scola shared, “Theft of ideas is becoming more common and easier to do…it’s a real risk for people… Investors, who might be interested in funding your company, like to know there are protections in place…IP creates a barrier to competitors by creating a ‘legal fence’ to keep out would-be copycats.”

Scola further elaborated, “Upon reflection of his experiences working in this field of law, Scola stated, “We’re the sum of our experiences in life, and in IP, we become exposed to so many ideas and wonderfully creative people; so, you get to constantly learn and it’s such a rich experience practicing this field.”

Hoffmann & Baron, LLP, work with a variety of companies from entrepreneurial to global, as well as research institutions.
