Eric J. Laury
Your request for information or your contacting Minor & Brown does not establish an attorney/client relationship.
Eric combines his experience in business with his passion for the law to counsel his clients before, during, and after they become a party to litigation. Primarily, he handles those issues which arise in the context of corporate, commercial, and civil matters. In addition, he has a background in the technical sciences which allows him to provide a unique service to those involved in the burgeoning technical corporation boom in Colorado.
Eric graduated from West Chester University of Pennsylvania where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Forensic and Toxicological Chemistry, with a minor in Biology. He was on the front lines of the then emerging science of DNA and was fascinated by its potential, profound implication on biomedicine. However, due to the infancy of the technology and the lack of application to biomedical research at the time he graduated, he decided to explore the world of business and went on to hold positions including: Corporate Project Manager, Media Planner/Buyer, Sales and Marketing Manager, and Entrepreneur. In the process of acquiring a wide variety of valuable business knowledge, he had the privilege of living in several major hubs for commerce and innovation including: New York City, Los Angeles, the greater Seattle area, and Denver.
After several years of participating in the business world, Eric decided it was time to merge his business acumen, intrigue for science and technology, and interest in the law. As a result, Eric received his Juris Doctorate from Widener University School of Law, where he served as Managing Editor of the 2010/2011 Widener Law Review and was President of the Intellectual Property Society (2009-2011). He experienced the summer of 2009 in Sydney, Australia where he studied International and Comparative Corporate Law. Eric also served as a Judicial Extern for the Honorable Mary Pat Thynge, of the United States District Court for the District of Delaware, where he performed the duties of a law clerk. For two of his three years in law school, Eric was the research assistant for Distinguished Professor of Law, Jean Eggen, and is honored to have co-authored the article, “Toward a Neuroscience Model of Tort Law: How Functional Neuroimaging Will Transform Tort Doctrine,” which is published in Volume XIII of Columbia University’s Science and Technology Law Review (2012). Finally, during his research assistantship, he co-created the NanoLaw Blog, http://blogs.law.widener.edu/nanolaw/ which provides relevant and timely information related to the emerging interaction of nanotechnology and the law.
