The World Trademark Review has announced 50 intellectual property market shapers – companies, people and headline issues that have defined the IP market for the past eight years. Among them is Lucy Nichols, who serves as IP Counsel for CREATe.org.
The feature highlights Nichols’ experience as the director of legal and IP rights for Nokia, a position that put her in charge of the company’s trademark, design and domain portfolios and anti-counterfeit and brand-related enforcement, and simultaneously rendered her as a key player in the ‘counterfeit goods in transit’ debate in Europe. It also nods to her prominence in the broader community promoting best practices and her current role as Vice President at the International Trademark Association (INTA).
Finally, the feature mentions her involvement at CREATe.org. Nichols’ expertise in IP protection has contributed to CREATe’s mission of reducing counterfeiting, piracy, trade secret theft and corruption. She has also provided valuable insights on topics including IP protection in China and INTA 2014 and the rise in Asian brands.
