Ron Cahill, a partner and chair of Nutter’s Intellectual Property Department, has been recognized as a “2018/19 Global IP Star” by Managing Intellectual Property. The IP Stars are intellectual property professionals who have been highly recommended by their peers and clients. Ron has been selected for the guide every year since 2013.
Ron works with clients of all sizes to solve their most challenging intellectual property problems. His advice ranges from designing intellectual property protection that maximizes the protectable value of the client’s investment in research and development to applying that intellectual property in court and in the marketplace to allow clients to realize that value. While much of Ron’s work involves presenting his clients’ case to judges and juries around the country, many clients ask him to apply that experience to strategic planning within their business, and especially with respect to their competitors or potential deal partners.
A leader in professional associations in the intellectual property field, Ron has chaired an American Intellectual Property Law Association patent law committee on legal standards for obviousness and is a past chair of the Litigation Committee of the Boston Patent Law Association. Recently, he has been active in formulating legislative proposals in the areas of attorney fee shifting and patentable subject matter through his involvement in the Intellectual Property Owners Association. He speaks frequently on topics relating to building strategic intellectual property portfolios and using intellectual property to enhance business value and is often quoted on IP issues in the business press.
Managing Intellectual Property conducts an exhaustive survey and research that covers 80 jurisdictions to create rankings of attorneys and law firms that show exemplary work in the IP field.
