As a fellow Georgia Tech alumnus and entrepreneur, I've personally witnessed Rick Bell's growth from a consultant at a major firm to founding and managing a successfully growing business entity. Rick's background in systems engineering, web technology, new media, and the pharmaceutical industry makes him a unique and integral asset to legal teams that engage in those sectors of IP litigation. Specifically, because he understands the intricacies of the underlying science and technology, he is able to advise prominent law firm clients and fellow experts in complex matters in major venues, such as the ITC, District of Delaware, and Eastern District of Texas. Rick and I regularly collaborate to exchange ideas, build and link our networks, identify industry trends, and promote business opportunities with thought leaders at Georgia Tech and in professional practice. Specifically, based on emerging IP services needs, I have introduced Rick to litigation technology gatekeepers at one of the top 5 international law firms headquartered in Atlanta, and Rick has brokered relationships between my patent law firm and clients, co-counsel, and mentors. I highly recommend Rick Bell's litigation technology services and support for Markman hearings, trials, and other engagements, as well as his dedication to consultative support, customer service, and professional relationship brokering.
