Former USPTO Director Andrei Iancu has returned to private practice — back at his Southern California firm Irell & Manella. Iancu had been managing partner of the firm before being nominated by President Trump to lead the Patent Office.
Congratulations to Dir. Iancu on navigating the tricky political waters of Washington DC these past several years. I hope that Iancu’s measured success during rather extreme times will encourage others to step-up as well.
