A Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP tem o prazer de anunciar que David J.

entrou para a Firma como sócio.

Kappos é amplamente reconhecido como um dos principais líderes mundiais
no campo da propriedade intelectual, incluindo o desenvolvimento de
normas, leis e práticas globais de propriedade intelectual. Em 2009, foi
nomeado Subsecretário de Comércio e Diretor da USPTO pelo Presidente
Barack Obama, e esta nomeação foi confirmada pelo Senado dos Estados
Unidos. Como Diretor da USPTO, ele foi fundamental para a realização da
maior reforma legislativa do sistema de patentes dos EUA em gerações
através da legislação de reforma de patentes assinada pelo Presidente em
setembro de 2011. A implementação subsequente conduzida por Kappos
incluiu o período de envolvimento público e regulamentação mais
abrangente na história do USPTO. Kappos pediu demissão deste cargo a
partir de 1 de fevereiro de 2013.
De acordo com Allen Parker, Sócio-Presidente da Cravath, "Dave será uma
excelente adição para a nossa empresa, apoiando nossos clientes quando
eles estiverem tratando de suas questões de propriedade intelectual mais
complexas, incluindo aquelas que envolvem a sua atividade de negócio,
bem como seus assuntos de contencioso e antitruste."
Parker prosseguiu dizendo que "a experiência de Dave será altamente
relevante para um grande número de clientes da Cravath, incluindo
aqueles nas indústrias de biotecnologia, consumidor, indústrias em
geral, mídia, farmacêutica, tecnologia e telecomunicações. A empresa
representa diversas empresas dentro de cada um destes setores, muitas
das quais já estão há décadas trabalhando com a Cravath com relação a
seus assuntos de propriedade intelectual."
Antes de entrar para o USPTO em 2009, Kappos ocupou vários cargos
executivos no departamento jurídico da IBM, a maior detentora de
propriedades intelectuais do mundo. Ele entrou para a IBM em 1983,
passando mais de 25 anos na empresa. Kappos trabalhou primeiro como
engenheiro de desenvolvimento e, depois, como advogado. De 2003 a 2009,
em seu último cargo na IBM, ele atuou como vice-presidente e consultor
jurídico assistente de propriedade intelectual da empresa. Neste cargo,
Kappos administrou as atividades globais de propriedade intelectual da
IBM, incluindo todos os aspectos de proteção de patente, marca
comercial, direitos autorais e segredos comerciais.
"Eu estou simplesmente animado por entrar para a Cravath", disse Kappos.
"Tive a sorte de trabalhar de perto com a Cravath em muitas questões de
propriedade intelectual ao longo dos anos como um cliente da IBM e
desenvolvi uma estima extremamente alta pela capacidade única da empresa
de obter os melhores resultados possíveis lidando com as questões de
propriedade intelectual contestadas e corporativas mais importantes e
complexas. De fundamental importância para mim, a Cravath lida com a
propriedade intelectual no contexto dos objetivos comerciais do cliente,
com conhecimentos jurídicos absolutamente de primeira classe, tanto na
área empresarial, quanto no litigioso."
Kappos foi amplamente elogiado por sua liderança na área de propriedade
intelectual. Em 2012, ele foi introduzido no Hall da Fama da Propriedade
Intelectual pela revista Intellectual Asset Management Magazine,
e foi indicado com uma das 50 pessoas mais influentes em propriedade
intelectual pela Managing IP. Em 2011, ele foi nomeado
profissional de propriedade intelectual do ano pela Intellectual
Property Owners Association.
Kappos é graduado em Engenharia Elétrica e Computacional pela
Universidade da Califórnia, Davis, e possui diploma de pós-graduação em
direito (Juris Doctor) da Universidade da Califórnia, Berkeley.
A Cravath é um escritório de advocacia líder, reconhecido nas áreas de
propriedade intelectual, fusões e aquisições, finanças corporativas e
contencioso. Em 2012, a empresa foi nomeada "Escritório de Advocacia do
Ano" para contencioso em propriedade intelectual pelo U.S. News
& World Report – 2011-2012 Best Law Firms Survey e, no mesmo
ano, foi classificada na primeira categoria por seu trabalho em fusões e
aquisições, títulos, banco comercial e contencioso na Chambers USA
e na Legal 500.
