Britten Sessions
Associate Dean of Intellectual Property – Lincoln Law School of San Jose

Britten Sessions has years of experience at every stage of the patent process, including early-stage IP opportunities, strategic
preparation and procurement of patents and alignment of patent portfolios with business strategies. As a patent attorney at Zilka-Kotab PC, he provides patent and licensing-related legal counsel to groups of all sizes, from individual inventors to Fortune 500-sized companies. Mr Sessions has advised on hundreds of patent enforcement, acquisition, licensing and other monetization transactions. To that end, he has assisted companies in monetizing patent assets yielding over $80 million in returns. Additionally, he has assisted in turning unmarketable pending patent portfolios into viable revenue streams supported by seven to eight-digit transactions.
In addition, Mr Sessions manages the IP department at Lincoln Law School of San Jose, where he also founded and directs its IP Clinic, which is the only non-American Bar Association school to be accepted into the US Patent and Trademark Office clinic program and the only IP clinic in Silicon Valley. He teaches classes relating to IP, patent practice and portfolio strategies. In addition, he has authored several peer-reviewed publications and eight IP-related books. Mr Sessions has been recognized as a lawyer by Super Lawyers (2016-2017) and ‘Top 40 under 40’ by Silicon Valley Business Journal 2016. Further, he chaired the high-tech section of the Santa Clara County Bar Association for the 2015-2016 year. He is also active in the community, providing many free presentations relating to intellectual property every year. While Mr Sessions specializes in every stage of the patent process, one key differentiator is his expertise in early-stage IP opportunities, which combines his talents of early recognition of winning technology, strategic procurement of enforceable patents and development of licensing-focused business strategies from the ground up.
