Wang Named AIPLA Deputy Executive Director for Regulatory Affairs


ARLINGTON, VA - The American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA) is pleased to announce that Chen Wang, former Deputy Chief IP Counsel at E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, will be joining AIPLA as the new Deputy Executive Director for Regulatory Affairs, beginning January 18, 2016.
"We are delighted that Chen will join our senior staff here at AIPLA," said Executive Director Lisa Jorgenson.  "Chen brings with her many years of experience in both in-house and private practice, most recently at DuPont where she spent part of her time working on international IP laws and policy developments, which will be invaluable in her work with us."
As Deputy Executive Director for Regulatory Affairs, Wang will be a senior adviser to the Executive Director, and have principle day-to-day responsibility for AIPLA's international intellectual property policy work and regulatory issues of concern to the Association.
In her role at DuPont, Wang monitored the development of domestic and international IP laws, represented the company in various fora speaking on IP issues, as well as interfacing with IP officials from the USPTO, the White House, USTR, and non-US patent offices on IP policy issues.  She has managed a global network of IP firms for DuPont, and has sustained relationships with officials from a number of patent offices.  Ms. Wang has been a member of AIPLA since 1999 and has been very active in service to the organization as a committee member, committee leader, and has served on the Board of Directors.
In addition to her experience as an in-house counsel with DuPont, she has worked in private practice with Brinks Gilson & Lione (formerly Brinks Hofer Gilson & Lione) and Fitch Even Tabin & Flannery.  Ms. Wang has a B.S.E. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Michigan College of Engineering and a J.D. from Northwestern University School of Law.   She is fluent in conversational Chinese and is an active volunteer with the American Red Cross.
AIPLA, the American Intellectual Property Law Association, was founded in 1897 to maintain a high standard of professional ethics, to aid in the improvement in laws relating to intellectual property and in their proper interpretation by the courts, and to provide legal education to the public and to its members on intellectual property issues. AIPLA is a national bar association constituted primarily of lawyers in private and corporate practice, in government service, and in the academic community.
