Episode Info:

Andrei Iancu has been serving since February 2018 as the Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) s, based in Alexandria, Virginia. An engineer and intellectual property (IP) attorney, he previously was the managing partner of the law firm Irell & Manella, focused on IP litigation. 

The USPTO is the largest IP office in the world – in few figures: more than 13,000 employees, and the examination of over 450,000 trademark applications and 150,000 patents issued every year.  So how is it to lead such an institution, and to launch ambitious reforms to tackle issues of our times?  

In this episode of Brand&New, Andrei Iancu talks transparently about his vision, his actions, and the challenges related to the future of IP and the office, and what is on his to-do list!

Every two weeks, on Tuesday, Brand & New gives the floor to inspiring individuals, with a 360-degree vision, to help brand owners, intellectual property lawyers, and marketing and finance professionals (and beyond!) stay curious and agile in an ever-evolving business environment.

Brand & New is a production of the International Trademark Association
Hosted by Audrey Dauvet
Contribution of M. Halle & S. Lagedamond - Music by JD Beats
