Des Ryan makes it into the 2015 IP Hall of Fame
Congratulations to Des Ryan who has recently become a 2015 inductee into the Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) IP Hall of Fame.
Des has achieved so much in his IP career and is a recipient of numerous awards and accolades. Des became a Member of the Order of Australia for his contribution to intellectual property in 2001. Des’ other great achievements include being elected President of the Institute of Patent Attorneys, a position which he held in 1975 and 1976; being International President of the Licensing Executives Society International (LESI) in 1988 and being recipient of the prestigious LESI Gold Medal.
In March 2014 Des celebrated 60 years with Davies Collison Cave (DCC); see our short interview that captures his time with DCC here.
We are honoured that Des has made such a significant contribution to DCC over so many years, and are fortunate to be able to learn from and work with such a renowned expert in the IP field.
Des and other inductees will be honoured at a gala dinner being held in San Francisco this June, during IPBC Global.
