    The Valley Current®: CLG meeting -Part 2

    You take a case, you win a case, and now you have to collect on the payments.

Listen in as Jack Russo and the CLG team brainstorm how lawyers go about acquiring the awarded sum in this real-life situation.

    The Valley Current®: What is happening to real estate in Puerto Rico given the tax incentives that continue to exist there?

    The Valley Current®: What is happening to real estate in Puerto Rico given the tax incentives that continue to exist there?

    When Act 22, the Individual Investors Act, was enacted in 2012, it instantly made Puerto Rico an attractive location for not only high net individuals, but empty-nesters and retirees looking to defer all their income tax and capital gains taxes for several years. Nearly 10 years later it’s impossible to think that Act 22 hasn’t had some sort of drastic effect on the real estate there. Jack Russo asks Rita Pellens of Sotheby’s international Puerto Rico about the increasing demand for homes in Puerto Rico and the impact it has had on this little island.

    The Valley Current®: Can an individual patent owner pursue a federal jury trial? - Part 2

    The Valley Current®: Can an individual patent owner pursue a federal jury trial? - Part 2

    It’s hard to imagine an individual traversing the federal system, particularly in a patent case. Litigation fees can rack up quick, meaning law firms may choose to not represent risky individual clients compared to safer corporations where more money is usually held. After 9 long years, Tarun Surti, who brought a major patent case against a company that seemed to be intentionally infringing, has finally won! - And more impressively, he’s done it all on his own. With the help of Google, Tarun put in over 10,000 hours of research to win this case that probably would have cost over $3 million of attorney fees. Jack Russo questions how far individuals will be able to go in the courtroom without the help of a lawyer.

    The Valley Current®: Is the World Collapsing Under Covid-19 Mutations (aka Variants)?

    Pandemic round 2… Round 3… Round 4? Covid variants are causing a new surge in infections and, as many of us may have guessed, covid could be here to stay. More countries are back in lockdown and in Florida, a condo collapsed on the same day the new infrastructure deal passed. Is the world collapsing under covid mutations or is it just infrastructure? Jack Russo talks with Dr Leonard Hayflick about the possibility of covid becoming as common as the influenza virus and how we treat this virus moving forward.

Knowledge and Info with a Heart

I’ve listened to several of these podcasts, and my interest lies within the startup culture. Jack Russo genuinely passes along good information, and humanizes the startup, invention, and legal processes. His guests are treated like friends, and the discussions cover insider notes that are not apparent to someone without a legal background. I have subscribed to the podcast, and look forward to more episodes. Thank you for providing relevant and future forward content!
