INTA’s president for 2015, J. Scott Evans, has some clear aims for his tenure and some strong opinions on a range of trademark issues. WIPR found out more.

“I generally get up at 4am and work on email for two or three hours before I begin my day. And you know, I’ve set my alarm at 3am and you have communications calls and then go back to sleep. You do those kinds of things; you make the necessary adjustments that you have to.”

Meet J. Scott Evans, who in January was named as the 2015 president of the International Trademark Association (INTA), replacing Mei-lan Stark. If one thing is for sure, he is taking this role seriously.

Evans, whose day job is associate general counsel at software company Adobe Systems, tells WIPR he wants to take INTA to the next level, an aim that will require implementing change at the organisation
