Barbara Wood
They're my friends  •  Staff Writer, The Almanac and Volunteer National and Local Disaster Responder, American Red Cross. University of California, Berkeley grad.
Soody is a very experienced attorney, passionate about her work. She is a great networker and has lots of international experience and paten ... t law experience.
Oscar A Nunez
They're my friends  •  Founder/Managing Director, HonduCafe, LLC. Previously Health and Safety Engineer, Alcoa. Boston grad.
Regardless of the technology and industry, Soody has never wavered in her desire to help any and all startups willing to take her advice. It ... 's rare that someone as established and as well connected to spend time with the "little guy" and guide them in the right direction.
John L Stoffel
We worked together  •  Distinguished Technologist, HP. Previously R&D Director, HP. University of California, Irvine grad.
I offer a strong recommendation for Soody Tronson. Soody brings a combination of strategic thinking and an intellectual property knowledge ... to businesses. She is able to understand the foundations of the technology and business quickly and create a comprehensive, robust strategy. Important technology directions and business fundamentals are combined to create this strategy. She then is able to create and link an intellectual property strategy that may include patents, trade secrets, and joint developments to support the overall strategy.
