Valorem Law Groupis pleased to announce that Manotti Jenkins, a veteran IP attorney, has joined us as a partner. After spending the last year in solo practice, Manotti felt that Valorem provided the perfect platform for his practice, which focuses on patent and trademark litigation and counseling, as well as copyrights, trade secrets and rights of publicity. Before coming to Valorem, and before his year as a solo, Manotti was a partner at Katten Muchin Rosenman in Chicago. He began his career at Barnes & Thornburg in Indianapolis after graduating cum laude from the Indiana University School of Law in 1996. Manotti has substantial patent trial experience, and he worked with Marty Lefevour at Katten. Marty brought his patent practice to Valorem in January.
We are psyched about adding two lawyers with the skill sets Marty and Manotti have. Patent litigation is one of the “Mt. Everests” to conquer from an alternative fee standpoint. Valorem is bringing its message of value, and its established approach to non-hourly billing, to patent litigation and Manotti and Marty together give us a fantastic platform to work from.
