David M. Shofi

Chief Legal Officer
Ridgefield, CT, USA

As a strategic legal executive with passion for driving improvement for intellectual property and legal organizations, I apply an effective blend of legal/IP expertise and business/management acumen to the client environment. I enjoy teaching, leading, creating vision and communicating to help clients realize optimized innovation, IP creation, and increased revenue. My ability to simplify complex issues and clearly present recommended options is especially valuable in the increasingly complicated corporate legal and IP practice.

Recently named a Top 300 IP Strategist by IAM, my IP strategy-setting activities resulted in the saving of millions of dollars in IP cost, successful litigation initiation and resolution, and substantial patent licensing income growth. I have managed the major migration of an IP Portfolio management system, and built IP teams through direct and matrix-managed structures and saved substantial legal spend while increasing efficiency. I have also spoken and taught regularly on issues related to IP excellence, trade secret culture, legal team optimization and IP development through competitive intelligence.
