New CIPA President elected09 October 2017
Stephen Jones has been elected as President of The Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA), succeeding Tony Rollins.
Stephen, who is also a member of CITMA, has taken over the role following CIPA’s annual general meeting last week. Julia Florence, who is a Senior Patent Counsel at GSK, has been elected as Vice-President.
CITMA President Kate O’Rourke said: “Congratulations to Stephen and Julia on their elections. With challenges on the horizon, collaboration between CITMA, CIPA and the rest of the legal profession has perhaps never been more important.
“I also look forward to working closely with them both to build on joint initiatives including IP Pro Bono and IP Inclusive, and to develop new projects.”
