In an interview with World Trademark Review, Camille Miller discussed her career, the trademark landscape, and the firm's Intellectual Property Department.
What has been one of your biggest achievements over the past year?
"I founded Cozen O’Connor’s IP practice two decades ago with one goal in mind – to create a full-service IP boutique within an Am Law 100 firm. It has now grown to employ more than 50 top practitioners. The IP department is consistently ranked among the top trademark filers in the country and as a top trademark litigator for both plaintiffs and defendants.
I have grown my personal IP practice along similar lines. Rather than simply parachute in when crisis strikes, I serve as outside general IP counsel, particularly in the pharmaceutical and life sciences industry. I lead IP prosecution, portfolio management, global cease and desist programs and high-stakes IP litigation. During the building of the group’s internal infrastructure and capacity, I averaged more than 2,500 billable hours each year in my trademark, trade dress protection, counterfeiting, data privacy and copyright work.
I have been assisting Fortune 500 companies in handling their global trademark portfolios and related enforcements. I have also been leading 12 active federal US lawsuits. In the past year, I have successfully led IP prosecution, portfolio management and a global cease and desist program for the world’s largest independent global dermatology company," Camille said.
