NLJ IP Trailblazers: Baker Botts Partner, David Wille Recognized


DALLAS, June 2, 2016 - Baker Botts L.L.P., a leading international law firm, announced today that firm Intellectual Property partner, David Wille was selected as a 2016 Intellectual Property Trailblazer by The National Law Journal (NLJ).

This second edition of the Intellectual Property Trailblazers profiles individuals who continue to make their mark in various aspects of legal work in the areas of patent, copyright, trademark and trade secret law. Each person selected by the NLJ has shown a deep passion and perseverance in pursuit of their mission, having achieved remarkable success along the way.

Mr. Wille has a broad intellectual property and technology practice. While the majority of his practice focuses on intellectual property litigation and appellate work (including patent, trade secret, false advertising, copyright and trademark litigation, as well as patent reexaminations and reviews), he has substantial experience in licensing relating to patents, trade secrets, software, trademarks and copyrights.

In Mr. Wille’s profile, he is quoted saying, “The U.S. Patent system will be increasingly important as innovation drives economies. I don’t know what the future holds for the U.S. patent system, but there have been some efforts to limit our patent systems. That would be a colossal mistake.”
