Keynote Speaker
Ambassador Ron Kirk
Former United States Trade Representative during the Obama administration


Matthew Gold
Adjunct Professor, Fordham University School of Law

Ambassador Kirk served as a member of President Obama’s Cabinet from 2009 - 2013, and was the principal trade advisor, negotiator and spokesperson on multilateral, regional/bilateral and sector-specific trade agreements. The USTR’s position is to improve intellectual property rights in countries to which American businesses export, or in which American investors produce goods or services, by having foreign countries obligate themselves in trade agreements to meeting certain IP standards. This lecture discusses the status of IP rights in light of recent developments in international trade law. Ambassador Kirk is Senior of Counsel at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher’s Dallas and Washington, D.C. offices, where he is co-chair of both the International Trade and Sports Law practice groups.
