Spherix Retains Skiermont Puckett to Monetize Patent Portfolio Acquired From Rockstar
Spherix Incorporated (NASDAQ: SPEX) -- an intellectual property development company today announced an update to its ongoing efforts to monetize the Company's significant patent portfolio recently acquired from Rockstar Consortium.
Spherix has retained the law firm of Skiermont Puckett LLP to lead the commercialization effort of the Company's patent portfolio. The attorneys at Skiermont Puckett are nationally known trial attorneys who specialize in litigating patent infringement and complex business cases. Leading the team of lawyers representing Spherix will be the firm's co-founder Paul Skiermont. Mr. Skiermont has represented both plaintiffs and defendants, including representing patent holders against some of the largest Fortune 500 companies.
With Skiermont Puckett's assistance, Spherix will actively pursue commercialization efforts of its patent portfolio. Skiermont Puckett is already drafting complaints against known infringers, as well as working with Spherix to identify other potential infringers.
Spherix Interim CEO Harvey Kesner stated, "This retention of Skiermont Puckett is yet another step in moving the Spherix portfolio of patents closer to revenue producing assets. Skiermont Puckett is an award winning law firm, with a distinguished roster of trial attorneys. It was important to retain a law firm that specializes in trial work to demonstrate our willingness to try cases if necessary to protect our patent rights."
