The National Law Journal releases list of top 50 individuals raising the bar in IP law

Tyron Stading, president and founder of Innography, has been recognized in The National Law Journal’s inaugural list of Intellectual Property Trailblazers & Pioneers. Released on Oct. 27, the list is comprised of the top 50 individuals who are raising the bar in intellectual property law in areas including copyright, patents and trademarks and licensing.

“We’re excited and gratified to see Tyron held in such esteem among the world’s intellectual property law and commercialization innovators,” said John F. Martin, CEO and chairman, Innography. “An IP trailblazer accurately depicts Tyron and his successes in revolutionizing the patent analytics industry.”

Stading founded Innography in 2006 with a vision of redefining the IP intelligence and patent analytics landscape. As president and founder, he believes IP insights matter, and he has made it his mission to make those insights easier and more integrated into business processes. 

From private practice attorneys and general counsel to CEOs, entrepreneurs and regulators, this list offers a snapshot of success and extraordinary leadership in a closely-watched area critical to global innovation. 

The Trailblazers & Pioneers list was introduced by The National Law Journal last year and has grown to include categories such as legal business, governance, risk and compliance. On Dec. 15, the inaugural Litigation Trailblazers & Pioneers list will be published.

“Intellectual property has become one of the fastest moving and complex areas of the law, with judicial proceedings and policy changes having a transformative impact on business and industry,” said Tom Larranaga, publisher of The National Law Journal.
