06 October 2010 The National Law Journal News

Foley Partner Jeanne Gills was quoted in an article that appeared in The National Law Journal on October 6, 2010 titled "IP professionals report increasingly strategic spending, particularly for patent filings." Gills discusses the results of Foley’s inaugural IP Leadership Survey, stating that companies are becoming increasingly strategic about their intellectual property spending, and are seeing innovation as a way to maintain and increase their competitive advantage. She adds that the majority of survey respondents view intellectual property as equally or more important than it was prior to the economic downturn.
