About William

Mr. Hulsey established HULSEY Intellectual Property Lawyers, P.C. to apply a highly-developed specialty and experience in energy technologies, including nuclear reactor and materials processing technologies. Graduating from Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee with a Bachelors Degree in Mathematics, he began his career as a US Navy Nuclear Qualified Submarine Officer. His active duty experience included the construction, initial criticality testing, and operational testing and performance of several shipboard nuclear reactor propulsion plants. Since leaving active duty Naval service he has obtained a Masters Degree in Economics from the University of Virginia, focusing on the commercialization of technologies, and a Juris Doctorate from The Vanderbilt School of Law, which he uses in active practice as a patent attorney specializing in the areas of energy and aerospace technologies. As a practicing patent attorney, Mr. Hulsey has developed and implemented complete intellectual property protection and licensing programs for numerous companies. Mr. Hulsey has committed his law practice and professional endeavors to promoting entrepreneurship and the protection and commercialization of his clients’ intellectual property rights. He serves on the Selection Committee for the Central Texas Regional Center for Innovation & Commercialization under The State of Texas Emerging Technology Fund Program. Also, Bill will be a Judge in the nationally-recognized 2009 Idea to Product (I2P®) UT Competition at the University of Texas campus. Through his work as a Fellow of the IC2 Institute, Mr. Hulsey has taught intellectual property rights formation, protection, and commercialization on all continents, except Antarctica, and HULSEY Intellectual Property Lawyers, P.C. provides a team of highly-qualified lawyers, agents, and staff representing clients in patent, trademark, and other intellectual property issues in locations ranging from Slovakia to Australia. Today, Bill is part of a multi-disciplined task force from the University of Texas at Austin serving the Portuguese nation—The University Technology Entrepreneurship Network (UTEN). UTEN knowledge transfer supports objectives that are becoming more and more important for universities in Europe, the US, and elsewhere: (1) excellence in education and research, (2) enhanced interaction with the local region, and (3) enhanced internationalization. The UT-Austin/Portugal UTEN cooperative program fosters ongoing S&T commercialization activities and experiences of relevant Portuguese universities and institutions to build on Portugal’s existing talent and knowledge base to help meet Portugal’s most critical challenges in the area of university-industry collaboration and S&T commercialization. Bill holds a Secret security clearance and has served the Department of Defense in active duty and reserve military, civil servant engineering, and private law practice attorney capacities for a period spanning over thirty (30) years. As a licensed patent attorney, Mr. Hulsey has handled a wide variety of classified patent, proprietary information, trade secret, and intellectual property licensing and contracting matters.
