I am proud to announce that Dan Harris of Harris & Moure of Seattle, one of HB’s favorite speakers, has joined the faculty of Protecting Intellectual Property in a Global Economy:  Was it Made in China or Stolen from America, a conference set for Dec. 7, 2012 in New York City.  This timely and important conference is being produced in collaboration with Bloomberg BNA, publisher of many of the leading, must-have  intellectual property law and business reports.

Dan mostly represents companies doing business in emerging market countries. He prides himself on his international network, which he maintains through constant communication and travel.  Dan writes and speaks extensively on Chinese law, with a focus on protecting foreign businesses in their China operations. Dan co-authors the award-winning China Law Blog, which focuses on the legal and business trends affecting China and those who do business there.  Along with Steve Dickinson (who is based in Asia), Dan co-manages the firm’s Asia law practice. His education is as follows:  Grinnell College (B.A., 1981); Indiana University (J.D., magna cum laude, 1984); Order of the Coif; Managing Editor, Indiana Law Journal, 1983-84; Highest Grade Award in Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, Antitrust Law, and Law and Economics; Robert Koleji, Istanbul, Turkey, 1977.

Among his extensive publishing and speaking appearances, Dan has spoken for HB on our programs on defective Chinese drywall, last year published an article titled Suing Chinese Companies: The New Wave for Bloomberg Law Reports, and this year  presenting Doing Business in China for the Economist Magazine Business Forum and Basics of China Law for Business for the Wharton China Business Forum.
