John E. Slaughter, III

News & Events
Professional Affiliations

John Slaughter, a registered patent attorney, handles a diverse range of intellectual property matters. His transactional practice is concentrated on intellectual property aspects of corporate mergers, acquisitions and credit facilities, specifically in the areas of:

  • Intellectual property due diligence
  • Intellectual property licensing and agreement work
  • Intellectual property secured transactions

Additionally, his work experience includes managing copyrights, patents and trademarks (prosecution, advice, disputes, and transactions) in a variety of industries, Internet law, and intellectual property contentious matters (litigation, oppositions, and domain name disputes).

He focuses on the intellectual property aspects of transactions to ensure that clients' overall interests are advanced.

For example, on behalf of a lender client providing financing for a pharmaceutical industry acquisition, Slaughter identified and rectified numerous IP issues in the acquisition documents and the assets being acquired, enhancing the IP secured for the lender's benefit. In another matter involving an IP-centric corporate client seeking a new credit facility, Slaughter was able to resolve numerous errant or old liens recorded against its IP, clearing the way for the lender to provide the client with the necessary financing to sustain its business operations.
