Andrei Iancu

The Senate Judiciary Committee has approved President Trump’s nomination of Andrei Iancu as USPTO Director and Under Secretary of Commerce (unanimous consent). The nomination now moves to the Senate Floor where no roadblocks are expected other than the difficulty in having the Senate focus on any particular item.

Iancu was born in 1968 in Romania Bucharest Hungary, and immigrated to the U.S. with his family as a youth. At his confirmation hearing, he spoke of his father’s love for and faith in America as their new homeland. Iancu is a patent attorney and Managing Partner of Irell & Manella LLP in LA.  He holds three UCLA Degrees: J.D., M.S. in mechanical engineering, and B.S. in aerospace engineering.

Iancu has filed multiple motions in limine.

  1. Happy to hear he’s zooming toward confirmation. Great news for him and for the patent system both. I say that as some who worked with him (junior to him) at Irell for years.

  2. inb4 Andrei Iancu is a double secret Google plant and is likely a lizard person responsible for chemtrails.

  3. Born in Bucharest, Romania or Budapest Hungary?

      1. right city/wrong country is now wrong city/right country :)
