A sign of the Mid-Atlantic chapter’s exciting growth, the Philadelphia region embraces its bigger space in the evocative Cira Center
Philadelphia, PA, Feb. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Keiretsu Forum Mid-Atlantic, which includes the Philadelphia, D.C. Metro, and Pittsburgh Chapters, is the Eastern US Region of the global angel network Keiretsu Forum — the world’s largest and most successful accredited investor – private equity community. The Philadelphia Chapter is excited to announce its new Host Sponsor: Woodcock Washburn LLP at the Cira Center at 2929 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104.
Woodcock Washburn is a national law firm concentrating exclusively in intellectual property law. Founded in 1946, the firm’s 76 attorneys provide personal service and trusted advice on a full range of intellectual property services across a wide array of industries and technologies for renowned organizations like DuPont, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, and the University of Pennsylvania.
Woodcock Washburn was recently named the top intellectual property firm in Pennsylvania by legal referral guide Chambers USA for the tenth consecutive year, so this is an impressive opportunity for the flourishing Keiretsu Forum Mid-Atlantic Philadelphia Chapter. The angel investor members are also excited about the bigger space this new sponsorship provides them, especially considering they were outgrowing their former meeting room at Blank Rome LLP in Logan Square.
Mike Dunnam, partner at Woodcock Washburn and chair of the firm’s Licensing and Transactions practice, also expresses enthusiasm for the new sponsorship: “Woodcock is proud to be the new Host Sponsor of Keiretsu Forum’s Mid-Atlantic Chapter. As an intellectual property firm, we have extensive experience counseling all types of early and later-stage technology companies.”
Keiretsu Forum embraces this technology expertise, as the technology sector is a tremendous driver of innovation and investment opportunities. The Forum attracts driven entrepreneurs and forward thinkers in the technology, life sciences, consumer products, real estate, and other high growth silos from around the world.
“We look forward to a long, fruitful partnership with Keiretsu,” says Dunnam. “Together, we will accelerate the growth of the entrepreneurial community in the Mid-Atlantic region.”
