Joanna T. Brougher, MPH, Esq.,

BioPharma Law Group, PLLC is pleased to announce that its Principal, Joanna T. Brougher, MPH, Esq., has published her newest book, Billion Dollar Patents: Strategies for Finding Opportunities, Generating Value, and Protecting Your Inventions.

According to Brougher, Billion Dollar Patents explains the current patent environment and covers the ins and outs of what it takes to build a strong patent portfolio that will generate revenue and keep competitors at bay. Far beyond the typical "how to build a strategic patent portfolio" lesson, Billion Dollar Patents explains how to create and manage intellectual property assets that will withstand changes, extend market life, and generate value. It contains many real-life examples and case studies of patents that have withstood the test of post-grant challenges and have helped extend the life of drug products on the market.

“I wrote Billion Dollar Patents for technology executives, entrepreneurs, and investors to provide guidance on how to better protect intellectual property assets,” said Brougher.

Brougher is an Adjunct Professor at Cornell Law School and is the former Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Commercial Biotechnology. She regularly speaks on intellectual property-related topics and is a frequent author of articles related to patent law and healthcare. She previously published a book Intellectual Property and Health Technologies: Balancing Innovation and the Public's Health.

Brougher graduated from the University of Rochester with a B.S. in Microbiology, a B.A. in German, and a Masters in Public Health. She received her J.D. degree from Boston College Law School.
