In the article, Malooley discusses that automakers are partnering with smaller start-ups to advance technology at a faster pace.

"In some cases, it doesn't matter if the company is bigger or smaller, because they have a technology the automakers can't replicate in house or get elsewhere," Malooley said in the article. “Now, the relationship is not so one-sided.”

He represents clients ranging from Fortune 100 companies to sole inventors, and assists them in all aspects of IP protection.
