"Trade Policy:  Its Impact on the US Economy"

Deanna Okun will speak about Trade Policy and its impact on the US Economy.   She will also address current events surrounding  the patent wars, the role of the ITC as the adjudicator on cases like Apple vs.Samsung, and firms seeking rents for patent infringements.  

DEANNA TANNER OKUN has extensive experience as a top administrator, regulator, enforcer, legislative aide and lawyer.  She served two terms as Chairman during her twelve years of service as a member of the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC), a powerful independent federal agency that provides trade expertise to both the legislative and executive branches of government, determines the impact of imports on U.S. industries and directs enforcement actions against unfair trade practices, such as patent, trademark and copyright infringement. During her tenure at the ITC, Ms. Okun was nominated to be Deputy United States Trade Representative. 
Her practice steers companies through the intersection where innovation confronts barriers, such as intellectual property theft, unfair trade practices or regulatory hurdles.
In 2012, she was named the Outstanding Woman of the Year by the Association of Women in International Trade, a chapter of the Organization of Women in International Trade.
Prior to beginning her career at the ITC, she served as counsel for International Affairs to U.S. Senator Frank Murkowski, Chairman of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee and senior member of the Finance and Foreign Relations Committees.
