Who is Roger M. Milgrim?

Roger M. Milgrim is a leading intellectual property lawyer, and the author of two four-volume law treatises widely used in the legal profession: Milgrim on Trade Secrets and Milgrim on Licensing. These works are companions to other major intellectual property treatises in the LexisNexis IP series, which includes Chisum on Patents and Nimmer on Copyright, which treatises are considered the leading treatise in their respective field, and are routinely cited by the U.S. Supreme Court and virtually all other courts. In late 2012 Milgrim's Guide to IP Licensing was published Wolters Kluwer. It provides an analytic approach to licensing intellecutal property, and is designed to aid prospective licensors and licensees to identify key issues in virtually every provision in an IP license.

Milgrim was a Root-Tilden Scholar at NYU School of Law, and won the National First Prize in the Nathan Burkan competition, awarded by the American Society of Authors, Composers & Publishers for his essay on territoriality of copyright.[1] He did graduate comparative law studies at NYU and the University of Paris School of Law as a Ford Foundation Fellow and a Fulbright Scholar.[2]* He was the first American associate in the Paris office of Baker & McKenzie, then the largest international law firm, and entered practice in New York as an associate in Nixon, Mudge, Rose, Guthrie, Alexander & Mitchell, where he served as a personal attorney to Richard Nixon, later the 37th president of the United States, and as the senior associate in the case that Mr. Nixon argued before the U.S. Supreme Court, Hill v. Time, Inc., 385 U.S. 374. That case explored the relationship of the First Amendment and the Right of Privacy.
