Halberd Corp. Retains Prestigious Patent Law Firm on Covid-19-Related and Other Disease Technologies
JACKSON CENTER, PA / ACCESSWIRE / October 27, 2020 / Halberd Corporation (OTC PINK:HALB) has retained the services of a prestigious Pittsburgh, PA law firm, Ference & Associates, to handle its intellectual property matters. The initial application focuses on patenting Halberd's base Covid-19 antibody as well as an entire new class of antibody conjugate. The primary attorney on the Halberd account is Dr. Darwin King, Esq., who has extensive experience in dealing with intellectual property matters in microbiology and antibody patents.
William A. Hartman, Halberd Corporation Chairman, President & CEO, stated, "We are excited to have Dr. King's experience in guiding us in protecting our valuable intellectual property. We currently have two issued patents and four provisional patents filed with the U.S. Patent Office, and have forwarded these to Dr. King. We are also working on a fifth provisional patent application which we expect to file within the next several weeks."
Mr. Hartman noted, "Although four provisional patents are currently filed, the allowance and issuance of a patent by the US Patent Office is a process that can take several years. The filing of a provisional patent establishes Halberd's priority date to preserve their property rights under the patent office's ‘first to file' policy. The patent issuance process will not delay or prevent us from continuing our pursuit of Covid-19 prevention, diagnostic and treatment research or other disease treatments associated with our patented extracorporeal technology."

Investor caution/added risk for investors in companies claiming involvement in COVID-19 initiatives -
On April 8, 2020, SEC Chairman Jay Clayton and William Hinman, the Director of the Division of Corporation Finance, issued a joint public statement on the importance of disclosure during the COVID-19 crisis.
The SEC and Self-Regulatory Organizations are targeting public companies that claim to have products, treatment or other strategies with regard to COVID-19.
The ultimate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company's operations is unknown and will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence, including the duration of the COVID-19 outbreak. Additionally, new information may emerge concerning the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, and any additional preventative and protective actions that governments, or the Company, may direct, which may result in an extended period of continued business disruption, reduced customer traffic and reduced operations. Any resulting financial impact cannot be reasonably estimated at this time.
We further caution investors that our primary focus and goal is to battle this pandemic for the good of the world. As such, it is possible that we may find it necessary to make disclosures which are consistent with that goal, but which may be adverse to the pecuniary interests of the Company and of its shareholders.
