Thank you Mr. Swartz!
You're response was very informative and helpful. I will check the Nondisclosure Agreements that I have on file with the various companies and universities that I solicited advice from.
In terms of the statute of limitations is concerned though, would the laws applicable in this instance be those of the state that I resided in at the time that the NDA was executed, or the state that the company and or university is registered?
Thank you again for your sage advice.
Thank you again Mr. Swartz!
Your communication is quite clear and concise. I truly appreciate that! Would it be a conflict of interest if I was to ask what a retainer fee would be in order to solicit your law firm for its' services on my behalf with this case if I was to have a need?
I need an attorney that is an expert in such matters and knows the law quite well in many different states. My case spans over many years and I have lived in the State of Illinois, Nevada and Hawaii while I was actively pursuing the possibility of bringing my idea to market.
I am also currently in Europe in the country of Spain which would add an extra dimension to effectively handling the case.
Thank you again for your help. If it is a conflict of interest to retain your firm's services, could you please provide some direction on how I should choose an attorney?
Ok. That makes perfect sense. One last question. Should I solicit the local bar association of the state I am currently residing in legally, which is Hawaii?
Thank you again for your help.
