About the Presenter

Robert Krupka of Krupka LawRobert G. Krupka of Krupka Law

Robert KrupkaDescribed as “One of the top trial lawyers in the country,” Bob tried over 75 cases to judgment, including 18 jury trials to verdict, during his 39 year career at Kirkland & Ellis LLP. Teams he led obtained verdicts totaling over $1 billion and recovered over $3 billion in settlements, including one of the largest patent settlements in history – $1.35 billion.

He worked for top Fortune companies and highly innovative individuals on trials involving myriad technologically complex subject matters ranging from software to semiconductors, chemical processes to computers, and smart phones to pharmaceuticals.

Bob now acts as an advisor on complex business, intellectual property, and litigation issues. Bob’s trial and appellate experience yields creative solutions to unusual challenges, jury trials, and appeals.

Who Should Attend?

Anyone who is (or is seriously considering becoming) an Independent Inventor and/or Entrepreneur within the Los Angeles area.

The DIY “makers”, the garage tinkerers’, and anyone who has wondered what it would take to turn the crazy idea(s) in their head into a new business. Formal definitions are suggested below for further clarification:

  • Weick & Marin (2006) defines an independent inventor as an individual who creates outside the context of a company, university or government institutions. Lettl, Rost, & Von Wartberg (2009) adds they are usually without connection to universities, who do not have access to incubators or science parks, who’s inventive activity is conducted separately from an established firm, and who does not have an obligation to invent.

  • An entrepreneur generally defined as an individual who recognizes and actively exploits opportunities on the market (Johannsson, 1988). A person naturally can be both an entrepreneur and an inventor at the same time (Smeilus, 2015).
