  • Efforts by state attorneys general to protect businesses and consumers from patent trolls (by Rob McKenna, co-head of Orrick’s Public Policy Group, former Attorney General of the State of Washington from 2005-2013, president of the National Association of Attorneys General and co-founder of its IP Task Force)
  • Pending legislation that will strengthen federal protection for trade secrets (by Rob Isackson, Orrick IP Litigation partner, current member and former Vice Chair of the Intellectual Property Owner’s Trade Secrets Committee).
