Wade Savoy focuses his practice on the rapidly changing intersection of law and technology. His genuine love and deep knowledge of the law, coupled with 25 years of experience and an intensely practical, business-oriented perspective, define his work helping clients achieve their goals, including selecting and clearing trademarks; registering trademarks domestically and internationally; managing global portfolios of brands; registering copyrights; making fair use of copyrighted works; enforcing rights, including UDRP domain name disputes; responding to claims of infringement and managing litigation; licensing and assigning rights; and training.
Wade is also a former law professor, recruited to Texas Wesleyan School of Law (now Texas A&M University School of Law) to help inaugurate its new Center for Law and Intellectual Property. Wade concentrated his teaching and research on the tension between new technology and the law and created courses covering new media and licensing. Wade also included community outreach in his teaching, offering free intellectual property training and giving students an opportunity to research, prepare, and give public presentations with an emphasis on translating legal concepts into understandable terms.
