With extensive international and domestic experience, Mr. Spadt continues to lead RP in developing direct relationships with global companies in both Europe and Asia. His practice focuses on the development and management of international commercialization plans and the comprehensive strategies that support those plans, including IP policy, procurement, monetization and enforcement. With a particular focus on transatlantic innovation trade, he has experience dealing with the differences between the U.S. and European legal frameworks. This experience supports his active role in policy discussions relevant to improving IP laws with the objective of lowering trade barriers between jurisdictions having mutual interests in fostering improved development and commercialization of innovation.
