Robert Milligan, partner in the firm’s Litigation and Labor & Employment Departments and co-chair of the firm's Trade Secrets, Computer Fraud & Non-Competes practice group in Los Angeles, was appointed Special Advisor to the Specialized IP Law Division in the American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Intellectual Property Law for the 2017-2018 association year.
Since 1894, the ABA Section of Intellectual Property Law has advanced the development of intellectual property laws, and their fair and just administration. As the forum for rich perspectives and balanced insight on the full spectrum of IP law, the Section serves as the ABA voice — within the profession, before policymakers and with the public. The work of the ABA Section of Intellectual Property Law — through its eight Divisions and variety of committees — is the foundation and heart of its productive efforts as the largest and most influential organization of intellectual property lawyers in the world. Each Section committee deals with a special aspect of the law as it relates to intellectual property under the statutes, common law and the provisions of international treaties.
