April 14, 2016 - Silicon Valley litigator and IP strategist James Pooley has been named to the IP Hall of Fame, joining a legacy of distinguished past and current thought leaders in global intellectual property.
Mr. Pooley, former Deputy Director General of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), former president of the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA), and current Chairman of the National Inventors Hall of Fame, is a renowned author and lawyer who has put trade secrets on the map.
“I am thrilled and grateful to receive this recognition from such esteemed colleagues,” Mr. Pooley said. “During our lifetimes, intellectual property has become the backbone of the globalized, digitized economy. We are all privileged to serve as professionals in a field that supports the creativity and genius of so many people and that delivers so much benefit to the world at large. I hope that my induction into the IP Hall of Fame can bring more awareness to trade secrets as a driver of innovation.” “The Senate recently passed the Defend Trade Secrets Act, and Jim Pooley was instrumental in that effort,” Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said. “He’s served as a tremendous resource and is deserving of this great honor.”
