Palo Alto, CA (August 1, 2017) – VLP Law Group LLP is pleased to announce that David J. Thibodeau has joined the firm’s Intellectual Property Practice Group as a partner, based in Boston and New Hampshire. Mr. Thibodeau’s law practice emphasizes the development and refining of patent portfolios, strategic advice concerning competitive intellectual property rights, and due diligence for technology-based financial, merger/acquisition and other business transactions. He regularly works with company founders, investors, engineers and scientists across the information technology industry in areas such as data storage, database systems, financial services, social media, network security, medical devices, semiconductors, optics, and antennas.

“We are very excited to have David join our Intellectual Property practice,” said David Roise, Co-Chair of VLP’s Intellectual Property Practice Group. “His extensive experience in patent prosecution, diligence, and strategic IP counseling mesh well with our already strong group of patent partners. In addition, his technology focus further extends the breadth and expertise of our group. We look forward to having him join the VLP team.”

Mr. Thibodeau said the move to VLP will be beneficial for both him and his clients: “More than ever, technology companies require effective counsel to protect their innovations while avoiding litigation.  Corporate consumers of legal services feel increasing pressure on their legal budgets, while demanding the best possible legal representation. I believe that VLP’s cost-effective model is uniquely positioned to resolve these very valid client concerns.” He added, “VLP’s focus on corporate, finance, securities regulation, and technology transactions is the perfect complement to my own IP counseling and prosecution practice.”

Prior to joining VLP, Mr. Thibodeau was a partner at several intellectual property law boutique firms and General Counsel of AirNet Communications, a venture funded start-up in the wireless infrastructure industry.
