Evolucia Engages DLA Piper

Firm Will Represent Evolucia in All Concerns Related to IP Licensing and Patent Infringement Litigation

SARASOTA, FL--(Marketwired - Jul 1, 2014) - Evolucia, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ILED) announced on February 3, 2014 that it had been awarded Patent No. 8,635,049 for a "Light unit with light output pattern synthesized from multiple light sources." This patent allows Evolucia the proprietary rights to exclusively design, engineer and manufacture LED lights that utilize multiple mounting angles within a LED fixture to precisely "aim" light at a specific target area. Today, the company announced that it has retained DLA Piper to protect and defend the value and integrity of its patent portfolio.

Evolucia's CEO, Thomas Seifert, stated: "DLA Piper is one of the world's preeminent global law firms. The firm has the world's leading Intellectual Property practice and it is extremely selective of the clients it takes on. DLA Piper's representation of Evolucia evidences the value of our IP and the contributions that our Aimed Optics technologies are making in the LED lighting sector. We are delighted to have DLA Piper as a strategic partner and member of the Evolucia team."

The engagement of DLA Piper is an important milestone for Evolucia as it focuses the company's primary activities to the creation and development of revenue channels from its core Aimed Optics™ patents. As Evolucia works with DLA Piper to both enforce and license its patent portfolio, the company will continue to work with its partner, Leader Electronics, to develop new Aimed Optics™ products for the roadway and area lighting markets with the 'aim' of further reducing fixture costs and increasing luminaire efficacy.
