"Thank you, James for all your efforts on this patent! I don't have much patent experience, but this patent seemed very difficult, trying to explain and claim complex ideas while avoiding prior art. Sometimes Jerry and I have a hard time explaining the ideas or figuring out what we wanted to put in the patent and we've been working on the concepts for almost a year now. Your ability to digest everything we provided and turn it into a patent application is very impressive!"

"Cochran played an intricate role in developing and commercializing our intellectual asset portfolio at Intellocity, Inc. Cochran attended and helped direct intellectual asset mining and development meetings so we got solid legal advice early in the consideration of any intellectual asset filings. This helped us focus our intellectual asset filings and allowed us to pursue realistic business goals. Having Cochran engaged in our process early not only saved us money, but expedited our timely filing and helped insure efficiencies throughout patent prosecution. Thanks in large part to Cochran teaming with us early in our intellectual asset development and guiding us through licensing options and negotiations we sold Intellocity eighteen months after start-up for $32 million U.S."
"Dr. Freund, thank you for your keen understanding of human nature, for your encyclopedic scientific knowledge, for your sense of humor, and most of all for your uncanny ability to deal with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. My partners and I attribute much of Adept Science & Technologies LLC's success to your exceptional intellectual property know-how and to your vast experience on how to deal with national laboratories."
