Antigone G. Peyton, Esq., is the Founder and CEO of Cloudigy Law.  Cloudigy Law practice focuses on intellectual property litigation and strategic client counseling relating to patents, trademarks, copyrights, unfair competition, Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) violations, and social media issues. “Antigone” acts as lead trial counsel in civil lawsuits across the United States and has been recognized among the Virginia Legal Elite for her work involving intellectual property law.

Antigone’s clients range from technology start-ups to international corporations. Antigone has successfully protected companies involved in billion-dollar intellectual property litigation and has experience with technologies that range from pharmaceuticals and medical devices to Internet, software, and aerospace technologies and products that include consumer goods and apparel. She also has significant experience involving patent and trademark prosecution and litigation involving copyright, trademark, unfair competition, technology transfer, antitrust, and trade secret issues.

Having worked for both a trial and an appellate judge in intellectual property-focused courts, Antigone brings an insider’s practical perspective to her litigation and client counseling practice. Antigone also trains other attorneys, law students, and companies on legal issues and strategies relating to emerging technologies, e-discovery, social media, cloud computing, and international data transfer and privacy restrictions.

Before she founded Cloudigy Law, Antigone was a litigator at Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett& Dunner LLP, in Washington, DC and managed the firm’s electronic litigation working group on e-discovery. Prior to law school, Antigone conducted scientific research involving clinical and pre-clinical biophysics and magnetic resonance studies at a large university medical center. This experience taught her the importance of business interests and needs when crafting legal solutions—a perspective often missing in the legal field.

Geoffrey Mason, Esq. is the Co-Founder and CEO of FastPatentPartner, LLC, which brings you the FastPTODocs product line. Mr. Mason has over a dozen years experience managing and trying biotechnology and pharmaceutical patent cases, and managing large teams and vendors programming and developing pharmaceutical client-facing litigation databases.

Mr. Mason’s experience includes representing brand and generic companies in Hatch-Waxman litigations relating to many blockbuster drugs, including Prozac®, Lovenox®, Augmentin®, Concerta®, Strattera® and Cymbalta®. Mr. Mason has significant trial experience and has first-chaired numerous discovery hearings. Mr. Mason’s trial experience includes acting as lead trial counsel in a pro bono criminal matter, where he prevailed by directed verdict at the close of the government’s case.

In connection with the blockbuster pharmaceutical cases Mr. Mason has litigated, Mr. Mason managed large teams and vendors programming and developing pharmaceutical client-facing litigation databases, including teams as large as several dozen attorneys resulting in the ultimate production of millions of pages of documents. Mr. Mason has extensive personal programming experience, including both developing and implementing word processing software to migrate legacy Navy word processing databases from mainframes to PCs, and developing one of the first 3D fractal geometry landscape modeling programs ever made for a PC, if not the very first.

As a practicing attorney, Mr. Mason has continued to use his programming and database development skills to oversee teams and vendors engaged in the defensible harvesting, processing, review and production of the massive data-stores that are exchanged during litigation. He is a recognized expert in these areas as well as in e-discovery. Mr. Mason has overseen and/or directly engaged in custom application development associated with all of these processes, and is responsible for designing and overseeing the development of FastPatentPartner’s proprietary PAIR harvesting system, which was used to create FastPTODocs unprecedented file history database, as well as numerous other FastPatentPartner databases and technologies.
